The adverse impact of the COVID-19 Crisis on the lives and livelihoods of people is hard to fully appreciate in real time.  Moreover, it is not equally distributed across socio-economic groups within countries or across countries. This panel sets economics and Catholic Social Thought in dialogue, discussing the socio-economic consequences of the pandemic, the policies to mitigate it, and the values that ought inform our judgements.
