Please Explain podcast: How has the pandemic shifted consumer behaviour?

In the early stages of the pandemic, weekly spending at cafes in NSW slumped to 40 per cent lower than what was normal before the crisis.

Now demand has bounced back as people continue to work from home.

In this episode, senior journalist Jacqueline Maley is joined by senior economics journalist Matt Wade to discuss how the coronavirus pandemic is shifting consumer behaviour and how it impacts the economy.
