Will COVID-19 reduce the resistance to Eurobonds?

WEBINAR

0

With the COVID-19 virus spreading across Europe, governments and central banks are mobilising resources in order to avoid a deep recession with growing unemployment and corporate failures. The issuance of joint Eurozone debt or so-called Eurobonds could ensure the necessary fiscal resources to fight the crisis. Are Eurobonds a solution to the current challenges? What should the design of such an instrument be? Who would be issuing the Eurobonds? How would trading of these bonds be organised? Where would clearing and settlement take place? The intention of this webinar is to discuss the practical aspects (and conveniences) of a common euro bond.
