Dr. Christopher Rauh was interviewed on "Wake up to Money" on "BBC Radio 5 Live" where he discussed the indirect costs to the economy of the furlough scheme from people staying at home and preventing the economy from adapting to the new normal.

Economic Impact From Covid
New research appears to indicate women on average have taken a larger economic impact than men as a result of Covid. Dr Christopher Rauh has examined the characteristics of workers furloughed in the UK during the coronavirus pandemic, and has found that women were much more likely to be furloughed. The prohibition on working whilst furloughed has also been routinely ignored, especially by men.
