TUAC Webinar on corporate share buy-backs in times of COVID-19, 15 July 2020, 14:00 – 15:30 CET

15 July 2020

What are the macroeconomic risks associated with the growing corporate debt and share buy-backs at a time of systemic shock caused by the COVID-19 crisis? What is the relation between share buy-backs, the sustainability of firms, employment fragility, income inequality, stagnating productivity, and what should be done about it?

This TUAC Webinar on corporate share buy-backs in times of COVID-19 will address such questions, with William LAZONICK,  President of the Academic-Industry Research Network and Professor Emeritus of the University of Massachusetts, and Robert PATALANO, Deputy Head of the Insurance, Private Pensions and Financial Markets Division, OECD Directorate for Financial and Enterprise Affairs.
