COVID-19 has had a profound impact on the Australian economy since it arrived in Australia in January 2020. Measures to reduce the spread (eg social distancing, trade restrictions and stay-at-home orders) have had variable impacts on economic activity.

The most notable impacts have been due to two variants of COVID-19: the L strain of the virus which arrived in Australia in January 2020 and the Delta strain which was first detected in June 2021. The impact of these variants on macroeconomic aggregates is explored. below and in relation to the Omicron variant outbreak of COVID-19 in the March quarter of 2022.

COVID-19 (L)

The arrival of the L strain of COVID-19 triggered an Australia-wide lockdown on March 23, 2020. The first major round of restrictions included temporary closures of pubs, clubs, cafes and restaurants, followed by various other service providers soon after. Many workplaces have advised their employees to work from home whenever possible. Household social distancing measures were put in place, with the toughest restrictions being that gatherings were limited to two people. Restrictions began to ease across the country between late April and early May 2020.

A rise in COVID-19 cases in Victoria prompted the state to enter a second lockdown on July 8, 2020, with Stage 4 stay-at-home restrictions introduced in August. Shorter lockdowns have been enforced in Queensland, Western Australia and South Australia.

Delta

The emergence and rapid spread of the Delta strain in June 2021 triggered various lockdowns across all states and territories, with Victoria, ACT and NSW enduring the longest and tightest restrictions. Leaving the house was only allowed for essential reasons and the compulsory wearing of the mask was imposed. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing has intensified and national and state governments have strongly encouraged Australians to get vaccinated. Targets for vaccination rates have been set in all states and territories. The incentive to ease restrictions and end lockdowns when these goals are achieved.

Omicron

The Omicron variant was first confirmed in Australia on November 27, 2021 when the country had high vaccination rates. Despite the rising rate of infection, the federal and state governments have not introduced. New lockdown restrictions and travel and trade restrictions have gradually eased.

Household and business income support
To support households and businesses, governments have provided grants and other payments during the pandemic.

The following lockdowns and trade restrictions. The Strain L epidemic has led to a record drop in hours worked and private compensation of employees. Workers have been laid off or put on reduced hours as businesses closed or scaled back operations in accordance with health mandates.

The Commonwealth government then introduced the JobKeeper and Boosting Cash Flow. Employer programs to support companies and employees in their employment. Grant payments contributed to the 12.1% increase in operating surplus in the June 2020 quarter. Gross household income is further supported by cash social assistance benefits. Such as the economic support payment and the coronavirus supplement.

The JobKeeper and Boosting Cash Flow for Employers programs ended before the Delta strain emerged. Support through the Delta variant has been provided to locked states through Commonwealth and state government co-funded business support schemes. Reduced direct wage support in the absence of JobKeeper. The COVID-19 disaster payment was the main household support payment. Assist those unable to earn an income due to local public health orders.

The level of grants awarded during the Omicron outbreak was lower. Governments focused on removing or reducing trade restrictions, while underlying demand improved. Pandemic Leave Disaster Payment has been introduced to support workers. Who lost hours for having been forced to isolate themselves in compliance with health instructions. These payments were less than the COVID-19 disaster payments during the Delta pressure due to the lack of containment.

Household consumption

Household spending patterns have changed significantly during the pandemic and between different strains of COVID-19.

Discretionary spending has been more impacted by the COVID-19 containment measures than spending on essential goods and services. Expenditure on optional services has fallen significantly over this period. The L and Delta strain outbreaks of COVID-19. Movement and trade restrictions restricted access to restaurants, recreational and personal services.

In contrast, discretionary spending on goods increased as consumers spent more time at home and were unable to travel. Many homeware and hobby retailers were mixed. The impact of mobility restrictions through the use of online platforms to reach homebound customers.

As the pandemic progressed, spending on essential goods and services returned to more pre-COVID levels. The emergence of the L variant saw panic buying of food. Food expenditures remained high during the Delta strain, as access to hospitality businesses remained limited.

The appearance of the Omicron strain of COVID-19 did not affect household spending. To the same degree as the L or Delta strains. Unlike previous strains, the Omicron variant did not result in lock actions. Vaccination rates were high in much of the country. The deletion mobility and trade restrictions allowed storefronts to operate regular business models, and consumer demand remained strong.

This fall, in the run-up to the midterm elections, a group of Catholic nuns, Protestant ministers and other religious leaders caravanned through South Dakota on what they called a “Love Your Neighbor Tour.” .

They stopped at grocery stores, restaurants, senior centers, libraries and other community gathering places to start conversations about health insurance. They heard story after story of family members, friends and neighbors struggling to afford quality health care.

The purpose of this tour: to build support for a ballot initiative to help more South Dakotans get the care they need.

Through such initiatives, citizens can circumvent elected officials who have become disconnected from their constituents.

In this year’s elections, voters over 30 states engaged in this form of direct democracy. These voters raised taxes on the wealthy in Massachusetts and Los Angeles, funded universal preschool and child care in New Mexico, and clamped down on medical debt in Arizona.

In South Dakota, the “Love Your Neighbor” campaign won big. By a margin of 56 to 44, voters approved a proposal to force their state government to expand Medicaid eligibility, a move that will help about 42,500 working-class people get treatment.

These people earn too much to qualify for the state’s existing Medicaid program, but too little to access private insurance through the Affordable Care Act. Since 2010, the federal government has covered 90% of the costs when states expand Medicaid, but political leaders in South Dakota and 11 other states refused to do so.

This isn’t the first time South Dakotans have used effective strategies of people-to-people organizing and ballot initiatives for the good of their neighbors.

In 2016, a bipartisan coalition with strong support from the faith community won an incredible victory against financial predators, winning 76% support for a ballot impose a 36% interest rate cap on payday loans. Previously, those rates averaged around 600% in South Dakota, trapping many low-income families in a downward spiral of debt.

In this midterm election season, Nebraska offers another inspiring example of citizen action to circumvent out-of-touch politicians.

For 13 years now, Republicans in Congress have blocked efforts to raise the federal minimum wage, leaving it stuck at $7.25 since 2009. Nebraska’s entire congressional delegation — all Republicans — has always opposed the hikes minimum wage. Rep. Adrian Smith, for example, recently attacked President Biden’s $15 federal minimum proposal as “economically harmful.”

Nebraskans view the issue differently.

Voters there approved an increase in the state minimum wage to the same level Biden has proposed — $15 an hour — by 2026. The measure, which sailed with 58% supportwill mean larger paychecks for approximately 150,000 Nebraskans.

Support The 74’s end of year campaign. Each donation will be matched dollar for dollar.

An article in the Journal of the American Medical Association in October confirmed previous research that food insecurity increased significantly after the monthly Federal Child Tax Credits expired on January 15, 2022.

The study looked at the period between January and July of this year in a series of national surveys and found an almost 25% increase in food inadequacy, affecting black, Hispanic and Indigenous families the most.

The article published October 21 in JAMA, “Association between expiration of child tax credit advance payments and food insufficiency in US householdsinvolved a cross-sectional study of repeated surveys of a nationally representative sample of 592,044 US households.

“The results of this study suggest that loss of monthly payments (child tax credit) was associated with an increased prevalence of households with children in the United States reporting sometimes or often not having enough to eat, a condition associated with adverse health effects across the lifespan,” the paper concludes.

Monthly American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Child Advance Tax Credit (CTC) payments were administered to more than 35 million households with children in the United States between July and December 2021. Figures from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities show that the credits benefited about 2.37 million children in Ohio. Tax credits were associated with a substantial decrease in food insufficiency, according to the study.

Under ARPA, three major changes to the credit have been enacted for the 2021 tax year: an expansion of eligibility to include families with very low or no income; an increase in credit amounts from a maximum credit of $2,000 per child per year previously to $3,000 per child 6-17 per year and $3,600 per child under 6 per year; and provision for half of the loan in the form of a monthly advance between July and December 2021.

As a result of these changes, about 92% of families with children were eligible to receive $250 to $300 per month per child between July and December 2021, according to the study. National data shows that parents report spending monthly CTC payments on food, utilities, rent, clothing and education costs, according to the article.

These monthly payments expired in January 2022 after the US Congress failed to extend the policy.

In a series of surveys conducted by researchers just before the CTC expired, the unadjusted household food insufficiency was 12.7% among households with children.

In late January and early February 2022, following the first missed monthly CTC payment, 13.6% of households with children reported food insufficiency, rising to 16% in late June and early July 2022.

“Given the well-documented associations between the inability to afford food and poor health outcomes across the lifespan, Congress should consider prompt action to reinstate this policy,” the JAMA article recommended.

These latest findings mirror previous research done by the nonpartisan National Research Group at the Brookings Institution and published in April 2022 in a report titled “The impacts of the 2021 child tax credit expansion on employment, nutrition, and the financial well-being of families.

Brookings researchers said the temporary tax credit expansion “has unprecedented reach” and lifted 3.7 million children out of poverty by December 2021.

“The expanded CTC significantly improved food security and healthy eating among eligible people,” Brookings found.

Moreover, according to this study, around 70% of CTC recipients who were negatively affected by inflation said that the payments had helped them better manage rising prices.

Besides increasing food security, other areas Brookings said tax credits help families include statistically significant declines in credit card debt compared to those who were not eligible; reducing reliance on expensive financial services such as payday loans and pawnbrokers, as well as reducing blood plasma sales rates; increased capacity to manage emergency expenses and strengthened family emergency funds; and a significant drop in evictions.

Brookings also found that credit enabled families of color to make significant investments in their children’s long-term educational outcomes. Black, Hispanic and non-white households were more likely to use the credit for child care and education expenses, Brookings found.
