The COVID-19 pandemic has sparked extraordinary economic policy responses by central banks, financial regulators and other financial policymakers around the world.  This webinar series will be bring together current and former policymakers from central banks and regulators, as well as SIPA faculty and other scholars, to discuss the structure and impact of these changes.  Which policies have been more or less effective in “cushioning the blow” of the pandemic for households and businesses?  How have different economic policymakers -- fiscal, monetary, regulatory -- coordinated their policy responses either within or across countries?  How has the nature of this particular crisis driven policy choices?  What practical policy lessons have we learned from the experience so far?  What else may need to be done on the economic policy front?
