Lisbon Speed Talk | Can Credit Rating Agencies derail economic recovery in a time of pandemics?

Might Credit Rating Agencies create obstacles to pardoning or rescheduling of debts? How might this affect economic, social recovery in states with strong fragilities? Is there a way to prevent such an hyphotesis?

These were some of the issues that Jayati Ghosh, prominent personality of the high-level advisory board to provide recommendations for the UN Secretary-General to respond to the current and future socio-economic challenges in the post-COVID-19 world, addressed in the Lisbon Speed Talk moderated by Elisabete Tavares.
