Professor Vesa Puttonen from Aalto University illustrates how financial markets globally have responded to the current Covid-19 pandemic. The stock market finally ended their longest bull run in history amid coronavirus and this black swan event resulted in panic selling in other asset classes, too. Capital markets, central banks and financial regulators have been actively taking steps to mitigate major market disruptions. Massive fiscal stimulus packages have been announced.
