CIGI Senior Fellow, James Boughton, joins BBC Newshour to discuss the impact of COVID-19 and what economic measures would be most effective as governments race to contain the virus amid a stock market downfall. 

"What we're seeing are governments making their own unilateral decisions around what needs to be done and what we're not seeing is effective international cooperation," says Boughton.

"International institutions are capable at coordinating a much more effective response than governments working unilaterally in a haphazard way," he went on to say.
