                    BSG Working Paper Series: Variation in government responses to COVID-19
Abstract: COVID-19 has prompted a wide range of responses from governments around the world. There is a pressing need for up-to-date policy information as these responses proliferate, and governments weigh decisions about the stringency of their policies against other concerns. We introduce the Oxford COVID-19 Government Response Tracker (OxCGRT), providing a systematic way to track the stringency of government responses to COVID-19 across countries and time. Using a novel index that combines various measures of government responses, we describe variation in government responses, explore whether rising stringency of response affects the rate of infection, and identify correlates of more or less stringent responses. read more

If we don’t take these measures, tens of millions will be infected, many will die, along with anybody else that requires intensive care, because the healthcare system will have collapsed.read more

16.03.2020  -  Coronavirus outbreak: EIB Group’s response to the pandemic

An immediate response to the crisis
The EIB Group has proposed a plan to mobilise up to €40 billion of financing. This will go towards bridging loans credit holidays and other measures designed to alleviate liquidity and working capital constraints for SMEs and mid-caps. The EIB Group, including the European Investment Fund, which specialises in support for SMEs, will work through financial intermediaries in the Member States and in partnership with national promotional banks.

The proposed financing package consists of:

  • Dedicated guarantee schemes to banks based on existing programmes for immediate deployment, mobilising up to €20 billion of financing;
  • Dedicated liquidity lines to banks to ensure additional working capital support for SMEs and mid-caps of €10 billion;
  • Dedicated asset-backed securities (ABS) purchasing programmes to allow banks to transfer risk on portfolios of SME loans, mobilising another €10 billion of support.

All these actions can be implemented quickly to ease liquidity shortages and will be implemented in partnership with national promotional banks wherever feasible.read more

16.03.2020  - Keeping Business Alive: The Government Will Pay

                     Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman, UC Berkeley

The coronavirus threatens the world’s economic life. The most important message that needs to come from heads of state immediately, even before any new law or complete implementation details are provided, is: “Do not lay off your workers or liquidate your business. Government will pay your idle workers and your necessary maintenance costs while you are shutdown. Government money is coming soon.”1 This is crucial to stanch the flow of mass layoffs and business destruction that is already starting. Why is such a measure necessary, and how to implement it in practice?

Ewald Nowotny

Ewald Nowotny

Governor, Oesterreichische Nationalbank (2008-2019)

„The Oesterreichische Nationalbank has hosted SUERF’s Secretariat at our premises in Vienna since 2000. Our long-standing co-operation with SUERF has been both a pleasure and of mutual benefit. During this time, we have jointly organised nine workshops, conferences and colloquia. These events have been of consistently high scientific quality and have always addressed topics of immediate interest to central bankers, supervisors, financial firms and academic economists. SUERF successfully creates a joint communication and networking platform among quite distinct groups. SUERF smoothly bridges the gaps in language, concepts, and interests among them, thus creating new perspectives, insights and solutions. What I particularly like about SUERF is the Association’s non-profit, non-partisan attitude: people there seek to facilitate dialogue and new thinking, not to push an agenda or make a profit. We will gladly continue our co-operation, and I warmly recommend membership and support for SUERF.“

Hyun Song Shin

Hyun Song Shin

Economic Adviser and Head of Research, Monetary and Economic Department, BIS

”SUERF provides a rare setting where economists from academia, central banks and the private sector can debate cutting edge issues and reach insights that are much more than the sum of the individual contributions. Academic studies benefit from the richer institutional setting from practitioners and policymakers, while applied work benefits from the eye on detail and rigour that academics provide. I applaud SUERF’s efforts and expect it to contribute further to the development of the subject.”

Axel Weber

Chairman, UBS AG

"SUERF does a great job in identifying the burning issues in central banking, money and finance. SUERF’s mission to bring together academics, policy makers and financial practitioners has become all the more important in the post-crisis environment. SUERF’s highly focused events and publications really add value. It is a network worth supporting and being part of."more »»»
