COVID-19 has had a devastating impact across the United States economy, but its effects are not evenly distributed among states or industries.
REMI Senior Economist Peter Evangelakis, Ph.D. will be hosting a REMI webinar presentation, “State-Level Industrial Impacts of COVID-19,” on Thursday, May 28th from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. (ET) that explores the heterogeneous effects of COVID-19.
It is important for policymakers to understand the structure of their states’ economies, as well as the areas of most need as they continue to plan for their economic re-openings.
During this presentation, Dr. Evangelakis will be describing the ways in which states’ different industrial structures have influenced the magnitude of the downturns they have experienced.
Potential strategies to mitigate the economic losses and bolster recovery efforts will also be included in this discussion on how COVID-19 has disrupted industries across the country.
