A new paradigm has arrived. COVID-19 has affected the way we work, socialize and spend our leisure time, reshaping some of the most fundamental activities in our day-to-day routines. All these changes in our lifestyle have a clear economic translation.
And this is a global issue. Since the outbreak last December, the virus has spread to more than 200 countries. All the efforts worldwide have been directed towards fighting the virus, finding a vaccine and trying to minimize the negative economic consequences.
There are two types of economic effects: the ones derived from the policy measures taken to contain the transmission, and the ones from the individual change in behaviour. While we are all witnessing the impact from a while ago, it was not until recently that we had data to quantify it. The figure of unemployment claimants, the reduction of tourism demand or the information on business closures, are clear examples of this. And the numbers are striking.
Without a vaccine, all of this is forcing us into a “new normal” situation indefinitely.
In this Special Issue of the Revista Galega de Economía, we would like to invite contributions dedicated to an analysis of the socioeconomic effects of the COVID-19.
Insights on a broad spectrum of themes are welcomed, including, but not restricted to:
Original research is welcome for publication in this issue. All submissions will undergo anonymous review to guarantee high scientific quality and relevance to the subject. This Special Issue will be open for new submissions until the 15th of December 2020.
