Preserving Small Businesses

The pandemic has had serious economic consequences around the world. RAND researchers conducted a series of interviews with small business owners in various fields.

You can read about this in the study.

Many think tanks focus on studying the virus and its impact on economic, political, social and cultural processes in certain countries and in the world as a whole.

We have launched a new section – COVID-19: Research, where we monitor the leading research, analysis and statistics on Covid-19 in think tanks. We publish these materials so that our readers have access to quality analytics on those issues.
