The COVID-19 pandemic has severely disrupted the ordinary flow of life, leading to the sharpest economic decline in U.S. history. Although the recession may end soon, the pandemic has adversely affected nearly every factor determining long-term macroeconomic growth, including education, immigration and the U.S. fiscal outlook. At this webinar, University of Pennsylvania economist Efraim Berkovich joined Baker Institute public finance fellow Jorge Barro to discuss these factors and their impact on the long-term outlook of the U.S. economy.
