Early signs suggest that the damage to the Australian economy – while substantial – may turn out to be less than originally feared.

AICD’s Chief Economist Mark Thirlwell will examine amongst other things the impacts of:

  • The extensive monetary and fiscal support that has been deployed
  • The recovery in consumer confidence
  • The unfolding labour market shock
  • The implications for Australia of our changing relationship with China
  • The contraction in first quarter GDP and what the short-term economic outlook may look like

Join Mark for an update on how the Australian economy is tracking in the age of the Coronavirus.
