    Crisis Dashboard: Big Data Helps Paint the Big Picture (Update)

    Our crisis dashboard includes signals from three areas: 1) public health, 2) the consumer sector and 3) financial markets.

    Over the last few weeks, significant stabilisation plans have been announced across advanced economies and in addition true stimulus plans are now under consideration.
