OUBEP Breakfast Series: The Economics of a Pandemic

Thank you for joining us for the six part OUBEP breakfast series: 'The Economics of a Pandemic', which started on Friday 22 May and continues every other Friday until 31st July.

The Oxford University Business Economics Programme (OUBEP) has presented the latest research by world- class academics on topics of immediate relevance to business leaders, to inform their decisions during and after the crisis. This series has looked at what the impacts of the Covid-19 crisis are on individuals and businesses and how the crisis may affect the labour market, startups, growth and inequalities.

After each lecture series has taken place we will add the slides and the live recording to each lecture listed below.
