Anxiety over the potential US economic fallout from the COVID-19 epidemic continues to mount. In this concise briefing, economist Josh Bivens offers policy officials some sober advice on how to tailor their responses to the particular aspects of a coronavirus-driven recession. His astute paper looks into how, much like the virus itself, a potential downturn could spring up suddenly, affect low-income people the most, and have an excessive effect on state and local governments.
