Kiwibank Chief Economist Jarrod Kerr and Bernard Hickey ‘Zoom’ out to talk about the once-in-a-lifetime shock to the global economy this week and what it means for businesses and investors.

Just as many other businesses are adjusting to the lockdown, so too are Kiwibank and Newsroom. Chief Economist Jarrod Kerr is riding the video conferences and monitoring the global and local economy from home, as is Newsroom Pro Managing Editor Bernard Hickey.

They assess the week’s dramatic events in global markets, politics and in business as the Covid-19 shock reverberated from one continent to the next.

They discuss the reaction of central banks (mass money printing) and lockdowns, and look ahead to what more the Government might do here to help businesses and support incomes.

This is part of a daily ‘Bernard and Jarrod Zoom out for Lunch’ webinar series during the lockdown.

Kiwibank is a foundation supporter of Newsroom.
