Amid the rapid spread of the coronavirus, countries around the world have sealed their borders, shut businesses, and asked their citizens to stay indoors. The global economy has been forced to a halt. What happens next? Join Foreign Policy for an FP Insider Conference Call exploring the measures governments can put in place to limit long-term economic fallout, and what options central banks have left in their toolkits. FP managing editor Ravi Agrawal will be in conversation with Raghuram Rajan, former chief economist of the International Monetary Fund and former Governor of India’s central bank, and Adam Posen, president of Peterson Institute for International Economics.
