Businesses that have escaped the worst effects of the economic fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic are typically in sectors which are more likely to feel the impacts of Brexit, a new analysis finds.
The report Covid-19 and Brexit: Real-time updates on business performance in the United Kingdom published today by the LSE’s Centre for Economic Performance (CEP) shows that sectors which entail more human contact such as airlines, restaurants, hotels and arts and entertainment have been hardest hit. Meanwhile those sectors that rely more on business-to-business demand, and which can be delivered virtually, have been less hard hit - these sectors include ICT services and professional, technical and scientific industries such as accounting, legal activities and scientific research.
Sectors unscathed from coronavirus crisis face being severely affected by Brexit, finds a report from Dr Swati Dhingra and Josh De Lyon.
Professor Lord Nick Stern is this year's recipient of the SIEPR Prize. He will receive the award during a virtual event recognizing his work and impact on 7 October.
The SIEPR Prize is awarded by the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR) every other year to a scholar or policymaker who has deeply influenced economic policy.
Mark Duggan, the Trione Director of SIEPR and the Wayne and Jodi Cooperman Professor of Economics at Stanford said that they are delighted to honour Nick Stern with the SIEPR Prize: "His previous work on climate change has been enormously influential in academic, business, and policy circles throughout the world."
"It is a great honor to be awarded this special prize," Nick Stern said. "SIEPR is an outstanding institution and it is privilege to be included amongst the very distinguished previous recipients. Stanford has been an extraordinary leader across so many disciplines, especially economics, and I am delighted to hear of Stanford's new initiative to establish the school of sustainability, recognizing the immense challenges of climate change, and where - again - Stanford will lead."
