Abstract

In a ‘normal’ recession the economy slows down gradually as confidence wanes. Not this time. So as to stop the spread of Coronavirus and prevent our healthcare system being overwhelmed, the government has enforced a lockdown. In so doing it has deliberately slammed the brakes on economic interactions so as to prevent physical interactions between people.
