Economic Impact of Covid 19 on Future Generations


Victor AugustoMy name is Victor Augusto, and I am pursuing an Associate degree in General Studies. In the fall of 2021, I will be transferring to UCF to continue my studies and achieve my bachelor’s degree in Finance. I intend to pursue a career in investment banking after graduating. The research project came as an opportunity to further understand and analyze the current situation our society is passing through, economically and socially.  It was an amazing opportunity to deeply connect with the Valencia staff and create new connections within the community.


ABSTRACT:  This research project analyzes the impacts of COVID-19 on the health system and the connection between the debt acquired during the COVID-19 pandemic and the welfare effects on future generations.  The Pandemic helped to flourish a race and economic inequality when receiving treatment. The COVID-19 pandemic triggered an economic crisis around the globe.  This global recession led to a series of crashes in the stock market and a slower growth of the United States’ economy. These events entailed public borrowing to support individuals and businesses. Primary and secondary sources presented in the research illustrate the correlation between the high levels of public borrowing associated with the economic stimulus to the welfare of future generations.
