Publication date:
Ramon Mahía, profesor de Economía Aplicada, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid

This paper succinctly examines the impact and effects of the COVID-19 crisis on the Spanish economy and labour market, with a particular focus on immigrants. The data reveal a significant negative differential effect among foreigners. The paper therefore recommends public administrations continue to work to prevent growing rootlessness and inequality.
