Argentina's New Debt Deal Is Just the First Step in Its Recovery
The deteriorating global and local economic conditions due to COVID-19 paved the way for a breakthrough in deadlocked negotiations between Argentina and its creditors by adding an impetus for debt reduction. Unlike previous rounds of talks that ended in long and acrimonious disputes, negotiations this time yielded a concrete agreement to significantly restructure roughly $65 billion in Argentine sovereign debt. But while the new debt deal is a significant accomplishment, Argentina's economic recovery still depends on President Alberto Fernandez's ability to balance his populist credentials against the need to appease the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and provide a healthy environment for investment by implementing structural reforms.

What the EU Green Deal Means For Governments and Companies
The European Union will increase pressure on private and public companies to reduce their carbon emissions in the coming years, and will also make significant funds available to help member states transition to cleaner energy. The actual implementation of the ambitious policies laid out in Brussels' Green Deal, however, will be slow and uneven due to the bloc's current pandemic-induced economic crisis, insufficient funding, internal political divisions, and limited access to the technologies needed to create more eco-friendly European economies.

COVID-19 Risks Robbing Dubai of Its Economic and Political Autonomy
By sapping Dubai's economic growth, the COVID-19 pandemic will also ultimately erode the emirate's political and economic independence from neighboring Abu Dhabi. Without the tools and funding needed to support its own recovery, Dubai will likely be forced to rely on another bailout from wealthy Abu Dhabi, which could impact Dubai's development plans, especially in tourism and finance.

Europe Braces for Another Round of COVID-19 Travel Restrictions
Amid rising COVID-19 cases, the reintroduction of travel warnings and quarantine measures in Europe will undermine economic activity, especially in tourism-dependent countries, leading to a slower recovery in the third quarter. These dynamics will probably force governments to introduce additional stimulus measures, which would further worsen their deficit and debt situations.

With Its COVID-19 Outbreak Contained, South Korea Braces for the Global Fallout
As his country's COVID-19 outbreak wanes, South Korean President Moon Jae In is emerging from the battle stronger than ever, though the economic challenges ahead will impede his ability to translate that success into progress on his ambitious reform agenda. In early March, South Korea's epidemic was the worst outside of China, but it has since been far surpassed by COVID-19 outbreaks elsewhere. On April 30, new domestic spread in the country hit the milestone of dropping to zero after topping 10,000 cases overall. Despite its relatively quick recovery from the virus itself, however, South Korea's economic outlook will remain grim even after the rest of the world -- and in particular, its top trade partners in North America and Europe -- join it on the other side of COVID-19. In the meantime, the need to shore up growth amid a deepening global recession will delay Moon's promised progress on economic inequality

Russia's COVID-19 Measures Short-Change Its Economy
Despite the likely dire economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Russian government has continued to resist significant stimulus spending, which has resulted in limited support measures that are unlikely to protect all of Russia’s businesses. This will ultimately hamper Russia’s long-term economic recovery -- a self-inflicted wound as a result of Moscow’s unwillingness to change its conservative spending practices, even in the face of a historic global crisis.

COVID-19 Throws a Wrench Into India's Economic Plans
The global COVID-19 outbreak has taken hold in India slower than in other areas, though the number of cases in the country has spiked in recent weeks. The central government and several of India’s states have reacted quickly with lockdowns and border closures. Like many other countries grappling with their own epidemics, India is now hoping to minimize the economic impact of such drastic containment measures with a new fiscal stimulus package.

COVID-19: How Pandemics Disrupt Military Operations
Amid the escalating COVID-19 pandemic, countries around the world are facing widespread disruptions to not only the health of their populations and economies, but their militaries. Even if the virus itself doesn't leave key personnel severely ill (or worse), quarantine measures can still severely thwart military operations. Meanwhile, military powers such as the United States may increasingly be forced to deploy additional forces to the frontlines of unfolding COVID-19 outbreaks at home. The resulting fallout could, in turn, result in setbacks in the fight against multiple non-state actors abroad, and potentially even the long-term development of military capabilities.

Israel's Rival Factions Unite Against COVID-19 -- for Now
As the coronavirus pandemic takes hold in Israel, its political factions are being forced to consider once unthinkable compromises to put the country on the right footing against the mounting existential threat. On March 16, Israeli President Reuven Rivlin officially tasked Blue and White party leader Benny Gantz with forming a government in the next 28 days. Gantz has since pledged to create a national unity government, which, compared with the country's current caretaker government, would have more political strength and legal authority to quickly and sufficiently mitigate the anticipated economic fallout of the coronavirus crisis.  Indeed, Israel's current quarantine efforts -- most of which have only been used during wartime -- are already estimated to cost the country 3 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) growth in 2020. But even with this new pandemic-induced sense of unity, a makeshift government will unlikely be strong enough to prevent additional coronavirus-induced unrest

Europe Tries to Spend Its Way out of the Coronavirus Crisis
In recent days, Europe's five largest economies (Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Italy and Spain) have each unveiled various relief measures intended to mitigate the economic fallout of the coronavirus outbreak, including cheaper credit lines, tax delays, and additional support for workers whose incomes have been affected. The measures all share the same goal: putting extra money in the pockets of companies and individuals struggling to make ends meet under increasingly strict quarantine measures. But it could take weeks, if not months, for the impact of such efforts to be fully realized. And in the meantime, many businesses across the Continent will go bankrupt, while others may be forced to permanently lay-off some of the workers they've suspended due to the outbreak.

Plan. Prepare. Avoid a Mad Dash When Crisis Erupts
As the prospect of escalating conflict looms over Venezuela and the Korean Peninsula, it is important to revisit the theme of evacuation planning and preparation. Political and environmental crises over the years afford us the opportunity to discuss the contents of your fly-away bag, considerations to take when planning an evacuation route and the importance of coming up with your own plans instead of relying solely on others. This guidance still holds up and we hope that readers in Venezuela and on the Korean Peninsula are reviewing their emergency evacuation plans. Thanks to dozens of case studies looking at previous evacuations during crisis events, there are further lessons to consider, particularly for private individuals and companies that have their own evacuation plans in place.

Europe's Tourism Industry Confronts an Unwelcome Visitor in COVID-19
Tourism is one of the sectors of the European economy that will be most affected by the ongoing coronavirus outbreak in the Continent. The importance of tourism for Europe cannot be overstated: It represents around 4 percent of the European Union's GDP and accounts for more than 5 percent of the total workforce. Tourism is particularly important in Southern Europe because it represents around 21 percent of GDP in Greece, 16 percent in Spain, 13 percent in Italy and almost 10 percent in France. It is also a significant source of employment. The vast majority of companies in Europe's tourism sector are small and medium-sized businesses, which are particularly vulnerable to economic crises. This means that Europe in general, and Southern Europe in particular, stands to lose a lot if the ongoing coronavirus outbreak extends into the spring when tourism activity starts to pick up. A contraction in the tourism sector

As Coronavirus Takes Flight, the Airline Industry Takes Cover
The coronavirus pandemic is ravaging the airline industry, with the most highly impacted countries of China, South Korea, Italy and Iran accounting for over a quarter of global passenger revenue alone. As panicked consumers continue to cancel or suspend their travel plans for fear of getting sick, and as more governments pursue containment measures and travel bans, an increasing number of airlines will be forced to either consolidate or go out of business. In China, this will likely lead to a market that's even more dominated by the state-backed carriers. Bigger airlines in Europe, meanwhile, will merge as revenue losses deal the final blow to their smaller competitors. But while so much is still unknown about how the outbreak will unfold in the weeks ahead, what remains certain is that the airline industry is headed for even more unexpected turbulence.

What a Coronavirus Crisis Means for Europe
Europe's stock markets have plunged in recent days, with its largest economies (Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Italy and Spain) now all reporting upticks in cases of COVID-19, the coronavirus that emerged from China in recent weeks. Stocks in European industries reliant on Chinese supplies, such as in the technology sector, have suffered some of the sharpest losses, along with airline and credit card companies, due to the expected reduction of economic activity in Europe. But with the size and scope of the contagion expected to grow for at least several more weeks, these stock market dips may just be the tip of the iceberg as disruptions to Europe's supply chains, domestic consumption and tourism sector -- and potentially even border crossings -- begin to more acutely affect the bloc's already slowing economy.
