1918 Flu Epidemic and Economics
 

Richard Gottlieb, CEO of Global Toy Experts and Publisher of Global Toy News, has done research revealing that the 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic had a very short-lived impact on the global economy. His article on the subject is entitled: "Was There An Economic Collapse Caused By the Flu Epidemic of 1918?"

No one is talking about the economic impact of the 1918 Flu epidemic. It is surprising because so much conversation centers around what some fear will be an extremely hard recession or even a depression.

As I thought about, it occurred to me that I had never heard about an economic downturn in 1919 or 1920. Rather than a decline, that was the beginning of the Roaring '20s. I believe we can expect the economic impact of the Coronavirus on most people to be short-lived.
