On May 14th, Li Daokui, a professor of Economics, Tsinghua University Freman Economics, said at the 2022 Tsinghua Wudaokou Chief Economist Forum that strict resistance to epidemic was actually two "battlefields". One was to control the epidemic. Reduce the loss of life; the second is to protect the economy.

Li Daokui pointed out that the protection of the industrial chain is the potential to protect future economic growth. If the production line and the industrial chain can be kept, the growth of each year can increase by 0.1%. Since the consumption is basically synchronized with the entire economy, the per capita consumption can also be per capita consumption every year. Increased by 0.1%.

Li Daokui said that after the epidemic came, many consumption declined, not only because of online shopping blocking, but also because many people's income declined; after the income declined, consumption decreased. This consumption decline has a historic inertia.

"We did a data study and found that today's consumption decreased by 1%, and it will decline in the next seven or eight years. There will be psychological shadows. Three -year natural disasters than our older or parents have the same income level. Consumption is much lower than us. "Li Daokui said that in order to keep the consumption of residents, logistics must be unobstructed. More importantly, it is necessary to give cash subsidies directly to the affected people.

"Stabilize future consumption in this way, don't have a psychological shadow." Li Daokui said.
