St. Norbert College: What’s the real economic cost of COVID-19?


What’s the real economic cost of COVID-19?


The economic impact of COVID-19 is staggering – encompassing everything from employment numbers to product availability to the balance in your 401(k) and the price you pay at the gas pump.


That much we know. But speculation, hyperbole and competing agendas, among other things, cloud the picture from there.


What’s really happening? Join economic and industry experts for a data-driven discussion of COVID-19’s economic impact. Speakers from St. Norbert College’s Center for Business & Economic Analysis (CBEA), Breakthrough and Wipfli Financial will offer diverse industry perspectives as they examine what’s happening across the economic landscape, with particular focus on financial and fuel markets.
