JFQA Symposium on the Consequences of the COVID-19 Pandemic for Firms and Capital Markets

In this special issue, we present 9 articles that study the allocation of capital following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. These articles study a broad range of economic settings and agents, including financial technology (fintech) lenders, retail investors, venture capitalists, small businesses, public firms, and the government. Together, they provide a comprehensive, detailed account of the simultaneous allocative shock waves that the pandemic has sent throughout the economy.
