FMN - 2020/July, Seg.3 - Impact of Pandemics in U.S. and Global Economies - Part II

Course Overview
We are currently in a time where the future is uncertain, and economic forecasts are unpredictable. Much like projections of where COVID-19 is going to go, looking at the situation objectively, this is the greatest variance in economic forecasting since World War II. As states start opening up businesses, the recovery stage can have many shapes and forms. The economic models refer to different recovery types known as the “V,” the “W,” the “L” shape and the “Swoosh.” Dr. Robert McNab, professor of economics at Old Dominion University, Strome College of Business, continues our prior month’s segment by explaining the correlation between the shape of recovery, the GDP growth and the unemployment rate.

Learning Objectives:

Upon successful completion of this segment, you should be able to:

  • Identify the difference between the “V”, “W”, “L” and “Swoosh” recovery models,
  • Recognize the difference between the two policy instruments,
  • Recognize the impact of a swift versus a prolonged recovery, and
  • Identify the challenges economies of developing countries face.
