Recovery from the COVID-19 crisis: Do not repeat the errors of the 2008 Great Depression - AGE Working Paper

Recovery_from_COVID-19_crisis-AGE_Working_Paper_Jun20-cover-croppedBeyond the immediate challenges to saving lives and maintaining functioning health care systems, the COVID-19 crisis is triggering an unprecedented economic shock to the EU and the world. Social justice, cohesion and solidarity between generations are at the heart of the European project and AGE is concerned that these principles might be put under pressure in the looming economic crisis. AGE wants to contribute to the discussion on the recovery strategies, urging to learn the lessons from the past 2008-2012 Great Recession and avoid repeating the same mistakes.
