The High-level Commission on Global Economic Transformation at the Institute for New Economic Thinking (NYC) focuses on actions that need to be taken immediately to bring the pandemic under control and ensure a prompt and robust economic recovery. The Commission argues that a series of actions could be taken today by developed countries, at low cost to themselves and in their enlightened self-interest, which would benefit billions of people in the developing world enormously. This session will be livestreamed on CEPS Youtube Channel. This session is organised in collaboration with The Institute for New Economic Thinking, as part of PERISCOPE, a project that has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
