Dr. Jonathan Andreas, Howard Raid professor of business and professor of economics, provided insight into the economic collapse and emerging, yet still uncertain, rebound of the last six months during Bluffton University’s first Colloquium presentation of the year titled, “The Economics of COVID.”

Using unemployment data, polls from economists and graphs charting changes in GDP, Andreas wove together a picture of a recession that evolved more quickly than one ever experienced in the United States.
