Economic Recession: What does it mean for U.S.?

April 29, 2020

The United States has seen a recession before.  You may have experienced it yourself in 2008 when homes were foreclosed, banks declared bankruptcy, and people lost their jobs.  

In light of Covid-19, an economic recession seems certain. That opens a lot of questions, like:

  • What exactly is a recession, and how will it impact people and our economy?
  • Who makes decisions about our economy?
  • What tools do decision-makers have to deal with a recession?
    …and many more.

Our guest expert will go over the basics in a short, jargon-free presentation, with plenty of time to answer your questions live.

Text or leave a voicemail at (617) 398-0051 so we can play your question during the event.

Dr. Louise Sheiner is the policy director for the Hutchins Center on Fiscal and Monetary Policy at the Brookings Institute.  Read her full bio.
