The Florence School of Banking and Finance, in collaboration with the EUI’s Department of Economics, hosted an on-line seminar on Banking and Covid on the 20th May 2021 (1:00 pm – 2:15 pm Europe/Rome Timezone). On this occasion, issue 2021.1 of European Economy – Banks, Regulation, and the Real Sector was launched.
Panellists discussed the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak on the banking industry and the real economy. The papers assess the supportive role of banks to the recovery and the liquidity of non-financial institutions, the regulatory initiatives adopted to boost credit and support the real sector, the “exit strategy” from the pandemic crisis and emergency policies and contributes to the debate about the future of banks and of a well-developed Capital Market Union in Europe.
