This project will monitor and analyse the macro-economy for its two year duration as it changes dynamically under the effect of COVID-19, using the methods of CHPCA and the latest Network Science developed by the members of this project.

The situation will develop under the spread and changes in convergence (hopefully) of COVID-19 and the associated development of economic policy. This project will undertake empirical analysis to provide scientific understanding, clarifying the effects of policies and present ideal policies for the future.

In order to do so, a deeper understanding of the macro-economy is a must. For this purpose, this project will carry out studies on the following five research topics:

1. Estimate of COVID-19 influence based on simulation on supply-chain data
2. COVID-19 and the macro-economy: Spread and convergence
3. Creation of economic indicators and estimate of spreading effects based on complex analysis of multiple datasets.
4. Proposal of international investment input-output table
5. Dynamics of the settlement network of deposits and withdrawals in a monetary institution
