Economía en el mundo post-Covid: lo que nos espera
Las primeras vacunaciones y las posibilidades de inmunidad de grupo dibujan hoy un horizonte de esperanza en cuanto a la superación de la pandemia. Pronto quedará atrás el shock económico más intenso que el mundo ha sufrido en tiempos de paz. Con él se han registrado cambios profundos en estructuras, en políticas, en los "animal spirits" y en el orden global. Tales cambios condicionarán el futuro. ¿Qué cabe esperar a partir de ahora respecto al entorno económico y a las actitudes empresariales? ¿Cuáles serán los ritmos esperables de crecimiento, empleo, inflación etc.? ¿Qué zonas geográficas, qué sectores y qué mercados pueden resultar más favorecidos por la recuperación económica que se avecina?
En esta sesión se abordarán los principales elementos que configuran ese escenario de recuperación, tanto a corto como a medio y largo plazo. Las reflexiones de los profesores del departamento de Economía, Antonio Argandoña, Juan José Toribio y Pedro Videla, tratarán de cubrir ámbitos geográficos muy diversos, con especial atención a la UE, España, y aquellos mercados de Latinoamérica donde nuestras empresas tiene una presencia más importante.
