As governments and institutions around the world take emergency action to slow the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, economists are doing their part by analyzing the economic impact of the pandemic, and by exploring policy interventions that can minimize that impact.

Here we collect articles and research by Barcelona GSE Affiliated Professors on topics related to the economics of coronavirus. Entries are listed chronologically beginning with the most recent.

This collection is now closed. Future research on the economics of the coronavirus pandemic will be added to the Barcelona GSE Working Papers series and media coverage section of our website.

We invite comments and discussion on the economics of coronavirus over on the Barcelona GSE Focus.
