    Overcoming the Covid-19 jobs crisis

    Overcoming the Covid-19 jobs crisis

    In early 2020, the employment rate in OECD countries hit a new record high, after the decade-long recovery from the 2008 financial crisis. Then the coronavirus pandemic hit, with millions of people unable to go to work, an exceptionally stark drop in economic activity and unprecedented job losses. What needs to be done to get firms back in business and people back to work?

    Covid-19: Making sense of the world economic crisis, with the FT's Martin Wolf

    Covid-19: Making sense of the world economic crisis, with the FT's Martin Wolf

    The global health crisis brought on by COVID-19 has triggered what is likely to become the worst economic recession in a century. And it has also brought huge uncertainty, about how long the crisis will last, how it will affect our jobs, our societies, and our thinking. Martin Wolf, chief economics commentator of the Financial Times, talked to Rory Clarke about the challenges and offers advice to policymakers, young economists and international organisations alike, as we all try to make sense of the coronavirus crisis. Food for thought as the OECD prepares to mark its 60th anniversary in 2021. Mr Wolf's views are his own, and do not necessarily reflect those of the OECD or its member countries.
