FULL LOCKDOWN ? Aliran The reactions following every public outcry through various flip-flops have largely contributed to the critical situation we are in today…..

In October 2020, IMF issued this report: COVID-19 Impact and Mitigation Policies: A Didactic Epidemiological Macroeconomic Model Approach that analyze the interplay between the COVID-19 outbreak and economic activity, as a tool for capacity building purposes: a workhorse framework that combines a rich epidemiological model with an economic block to shed light on the tradeoffs between saving lives and preserving economic outcomes under various mitigation policies and scenarios. The benchmark setup links the effective contact frequency and labour supply decisions to the current state of the disease progression, allowing for relevant behavioral responses that introduce multiple feedback channels. It showcases the effects of various “smart” mitigation measures, e.g. improved quarantine capacity or targeted labour market restrictions, to alleviate the tradeoffs between health-related outcomes and economic activity, including in response to a second infection wave. The discovery of treatment or vaccine, and the possibility of temporary immunity for the recovered individuals are also considered. The model is further extended to a multisector framework to analyze the sectoral allocation effects of the COVID-19 shock……….that was inevitably lost under an incapacitated and irresponsible governance.

CHINA SEEKS TECHNOLOGICAL SELF RELIANCE Denis Simon, Duke University : conspicuous aspects of China’s 14th Five Year Plan is the new emphasis on technological self-strengthening (keji zili ziqiang). During the Cultural Revolution, as China sought to delink itself from the West and follow a policy of autarky, self-reliance (zili gengsheng) became an important ideological path…..

CHINA POPULATION Bert Hofman, NUS Demographics have already stopped contributing to China’s economic growth. The labour force has been declining since 2012 and is now some 40 million fewer than a decade ago. Accumulated human capital — China’s investments in education — will play an increasing role in driving productivity as the better educated enter the workforce.
