Covid Economics: vetted and real-time papers

CEPR has launched a new online peer-reviewed review to disseminate emerging scholarly work on the Covid-19 epidemic. Very quickly after the onset of the epidemic a large number of policy papers have been written by economic scholars, many of which have appeared on VoxEU. This has been enormously helpful to improve our understanding of policy options. The next step requires more formal investigations, based on explicit theory and/or empirical evidence. This is what Covid Economics: Vetted and Real-Time Papers aims to provide.
