In many countries, the global COVID-19 pandemic has brought economic activity to its knees. Countries are struggling to deal with the pandemic and with the economic devastation that it has brought. This report looks at the global economy and how it has performed in 2020. While most organizations would not like to be seen as profiting from the pandemic, the pandemic has helped some organizations grow. It has brought other behemoths to their knees.

This report also looks at organizations that have grown the most and organizations that have been hurt the most from the pandemic.

What is a Pandemic? What Happens Economically in One?

Have you ever played the board game Pandemic? It is a game in which players collaborate to deal with a disease that has broken out. Or have you played the simple mobile game Plague Inc.? That is a game in which you are in control of a pandemic and are looking to spread it (while learning more about the disease) and the world (played by AI) tries to find a cure or locks down to prevent the spread before the population dies out. While these games provide entertainment and may help us learn how to deal with a pandemic in a closed setting, we know that reality with its dynamic settings is often slightly different. A pandemic fosters doom and gloom. A mysterious, rapidly spreading illness, misinformed panic, lack of medication, and general anxiety loom everywhere. Who to blame? What to do? Where to go? These are usually questions that arise during pandemics.
