From the Introduction: "The immediate risks that COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] poses to health and economic activity are clear. But similar to the way health-care professionals and scientists now recognize potential long-lasting health impacts in some individuals even after they appear to have recovered from an active infection, economists and policymakers should be considering economic impacts that could persist long after businesses have reopened and shelter-in-place orders have been lifted. This essay addresses one such concern: the state of competition in the economy."
