Abstract

Both the Conservatives and Labour are keen on a ‘Covid bond’, which would encourage savers to fund the post-pandemic recovery. But the economic rationale is not immediately clear. Natacha Postel-Vinay (LSE) looks at how bonds could help the government navigate two possible challenges: rising inflation and tax hikes.
