• The global health emergency caused by the spread of COVID-19 has had strong impact not only on public health, but also on the health of the economy.
    The decrease in business due to the health situation, the stop during the lockdown, the slowdown in GDP growth, the worldwide collapse of the international economy, the recession, the increase in corporate debt, bankruptcies, and the rise in unemployment, are terms that have now became common in current discussions and have been accentuated in particular by the media.
    However, in such a delicate and extraordinary situation, it is difficult to understand the impact on the real economy and employment.

    We will discuss these issues with key guests seeking an insight into the state of health of our economy. We will then reflect on possible future economic prospects, addressing the sensitive role of current topics such as climate, technology and the media.
