The digital transformation affects many aspects of private and public lives, including how we make private and political decisions. To contribute to a better understanding of these issues, the Swiss Journal of Economics and Statistics has launched a special issue on the economic and societal consequences, opportunities, challenges, risks and possible coping strategies connected to the «Digital Transformation».

The Covid-19 pandemic presents a great challenge for health policy, but also for economic policy more broadly. The only remedy so far has involved confinement of substantial parts of the population to ensure appropriate levels of social distance. These necessary measures carry a substantial economic cost, with early data showing an unprecedented contraction in economic activity. In these massively changing times, economists can contribute to shaping the debate. The Swiss Journal of Economics and Statistics has prepared a collection of submissions that analyze the disease and its impact on the economic and health situation, propose ways to mitigate economic consequences, or discuss ways to return to normal life, among others. Read the collection on Covid-19 here.
