The health crisis unleashed by the coronavirus has led to an unprecedented situation. For the first time multiple offices, factories, cities and virtually entire countries have closed. Of course, closing the doors of entire countries doesn’t come cheap.
To try to prevent things from getting completely out of hand and end up mired in a huge economic crisis, virtually every government in the world is approving all sorts of plans.
Only considering the approved stimulus in public spending, loans and interventions by central banks, the bill already amounts to trillions of dollars.
