The ongoing spread of the novel coronavirus has become one of the biggest threats to the global economy. The pandemic has brought most of the world’s advanced economies to a near standstill, with governments and businesses entering uncharted territory and responding to the outbreak in unprecedented ways. What are the economic implications of the pandemic for Japan and the United States? How much impact has it had so far? Are we headed for a global recession? How quickly can the economies bounce back from the coronavirus? In this webinar, the speakers provide their expert perspectives on the evolving situation and economic implications for Japan and the United States.
