#SluggerTV – Our New Economic Normal #TheReset

Events are moving pretty fast this week as we try to work out how to deal with surging case numbers and rising hospital admissions. Another grim set of statistics are the rising numbers of unemployed people, particularly under the age of 35, as we deal with the recession brought on by the pandemic.

Times are uncertain and in this fourth episode of  Slugger TV to tie in with The Reset series, we turn our focus to the economics of the COVID-19 pandemic and what potential challenges and opportunities lie ahead.

Taking us through these debates are Angela McGowan (Director of CBI Northern Ireland) and Richard Ramsey (Chief Economist at Ulster Bank).
