Comparación de países del G7 tras el impacto del Covid-19

By Ninian Carter

December 1, 2020 - Se espera que las implicaciones financieras de la pandemia de coronavirus entre las naciones del G7 se sientan más agudamente en Italia, donde sepredice una caída de casi 13% del PIB en 2020, según Deloitte.

Covid-19 has caused the greatest anxiety for the Group of Seven (G7) industrialised nations' economies since World War II, and is likely to do so for many years to come.

The pandemic has left most people concerned about their health, and businesses on the brink of collapse due to falling demand from lockdowns and social distancing measures.

Governments and central banks reacted quickly to counter the downturn, authorising enormous stimulus packages to try and set recovery in motion, but such moves are no guarantee that recovery will be swift.

Consumer spending fell sharply in Q2, ranging from 8.2% in Japan to 23.1% in the United Kingdom.

Data on retail sales and manufacturing suggests that a recovery is likely now underway in G7 economies, although it's too soon to say whether this will be a sustained upswing.

Whatever the future brings, G7 nations will likely have to spend years healing wrecked economies and the deep scars to their health services and society as a whole.
