Webinar-Mitschnitt: US elections and the Corona crisis9. April 2020
The coronavirus pandemic has turned American life, the economy and politics on its head and has drastically upended the 2020 elections. The United States has more confirmed cases than any other single country with the states of New York, California and Washington being particularly hit hard. The outbreak has already claimed more than 2,000 lives in the United States and well over ten million jobs in just two weeks. The unemployment rate could rise to double digits as soon as next month. What will be the U.S. economic and political response to the coronavirus pandemic? What impact will the coronavirus crisis have on the U.S. elections in November? A webinar by Rasmus Andresen (MEP) & Reinhard Bütikofer (MEP) with Julie Smith, Director Asia Program, German Marshall Fund (GMF) and Bastian Hermisson, Head of office, Heinrich Böll Foundation Washington, D.C.
