Associate Professor Stig Jensen has co-authored an article on COVID-19, macroeconomy, and forests

Associate Professor Stig Jensen has co-authored a peer reviewed article titled "Coronavirus, macroeconomy, and forests: What likely impacts? In the journal Forest Policy and Economics. 

The article focuses on uncertainties about how the coronavirus (COVID-19) and its derived crisis effects will impact both the economy and forests. The authors conceptualize a recursive model where an initial COVID-19 supply-side shock hits first the Global North that, mediated by country-specific epidemic management strategies and other (fiscal, monetary, trade) policy responses feed through to financial markets and the real economy.
