COVID-19's Impact on the Regional Economy

Keynote Presentation by Charles Gascon

What’s in store for 2021, as we consider COVID-19’s impact on nearly every aspect of the economy in 2020? Have any trends or themes emerged that may point to how the pandemic will continue to affect the St. Louis regional economy in the future? Are we poised to return to old growth trends in the region—or are signs pointing to change?

The event featured a discussion of these and other questions during a virtual presentation on COVID-19's impact on the St. Louis regional economy by economist Charles Gascon of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. During the session, Gascon also shared his research on the global pandemic and its nationwide impact.

This presentation was part of the St. Louis Fed’s discussion series called Dialogue with the Fed: Beyond Today’s Financial Headlines. See previous presentations on our homepage.
