Covid-19 prompted unprecedented economic and financial market government interventions. Because it was unprecedented, policy initiatives were by and large untested and could not be evaluated in light of previous events. Due to the heterogeneity of the policy responses, with different jurisdictions reacting in very different ways and the impact reaching a significant level, researchers have been able to shed light on how the financial markets, in particular, reacted to the policy initiatives: what worked, what didn't work and what should have been done.
