In a short span of time, the COVID-19 pandemic drastically disrupted the way we live and work—and will have profound effects on the economy and productivity for years to come.
Our research team is examining how businesses and workers are adapting to measures, such as lockdowns and remote working, brought on by the pandemic. We offer insights, models, and analysis to help business leaders, lawmakers, and the public solve challenges posed by COVID-19.
