Greater Manchester economy: response to crises

Research output: Other contribution


The coronavirus pandemic has shone a spotlight on the inequalities in our society. Those in comfortable jobs have largely been able to work remotely from home. Those in precarious sectors and occupations have lost the most, particularly in deprived communities. The tighter restrictions imposed on Greater Manchester since the easing of the first lockdown in July 2020 will require a different scale of policy response for the regional COVID-19 recovery and “levelling-up”. In this blog Dr Marianne Sensier from the Alliance Manchester Business School assesses the depth of economic scarring in Greater Manchester from both the coronavirus pandemic recession and the 2008 global financial crisis. This blog accompanies a Greater Manchester Dashboard of statistics.
