About Covid Economics
Covid Economics, Vetted and Real-Time Papers, launched at the end of March 2020, is a free online CEPR publication. It was created to quickly disseminate fast-rising scholarly work on the Covid-19 epidemic. Alongside VoxEU, which presented short analyses on the epidemic and other economic issues, Covid Economics featured more formal investigations, based on explicit theory and/or empirical evidence.
The Covid-19 breakout challenged all areas of economics including, but not only, health, industrial organization, macroeconomics, finance, history, development, inequality, political economy and public finance, and concerns theory as well as empirical evidence. Submissions in all these areas were welcomed until June 2021.
