Thirteenth Issue - Covid Economics: Vetted and Real-Time Papers
This is a new online publication to disseminate emerging scholarly work on the Covid-19 epidemic. Very quickly after the onset of the epidemic, a large number of policy papers were produced by economic scholars, many of which have appeared on VoxEU. This was enormously helpful in improving our understanding of policy options, but the next step requires more formal investigations, based on explicit theory and/or empirical evidence. Covid Economics, the papers in which are vetted by Editors for quality and relevance, aims to collate some of the best economic research on Covid-19 so that it might inform the academic and policy debate in an acute crisis when results have to circulate fast. It has been extremely well received by both the academic and policy-making communities.
The title, Covid Economics, Vetted and Real-Time Papers, edited by Charles Wyplosz, has been chosen deliberately:
The thirteenth issue is now available; we intend to publish issues online as soon as a sufficient number of papers are accepted (five to seven), and thus the frequency of publication will be determined endogenously.
