Panel Discussion: Rebuilding Macroeconomics after the Pandemic

Published: Monday 15 June, 2020



Financial Crisis, nationalism and COVID-19 are all socio-economic pandemics in the last decade. Each one starts in a small corner of our world, then spreads across continents in a very short space of time. Each one is a surprise, and each one catches us unprepared. If we are to be prepared for the next pandemic or crisis, we need a different approach to economics. It has to be possible to generate cascading systemic events within our models. We argue that this requires making the importance of social interaction central to economic models. Social foundations determine the rules of the game, how we interact with others and the ultimately the resilience of the economy.

This Global Table discussed the need to put social foundations at the center of rebuilding macroeconomics and economic policy. Click here to watch the full discussion.
