    Pandemics are disruptive events that have profound consequences for society and the economy. This volume aims to present an analysis of the economic impact of COVID-19 and its likely consequences for our future by drawing from the expertise of authors that specialise in a wide range of fields including fiscal and monetary policy, banking, financial markets, pensions and insurance, artificial intelligence and big data, climate change, labour market, travel, tourism and politics, among others. Adrian, Helen and Andrew's chapter, 'What Can the Black Death Tell Us about the Global Economic Consequences of a Pandemic?', considers what lessons fourteenth-century reactions to the bubonic plague pandemic hold for modern policy makers.
