BISR Live: Pandemic and Political Economy

It’s been three months since U.S. businesses began to close and Americans started sheltering in place. In a follow up to our March 26th episode of BISR Live, Epidemiology and Economics, BISR’s Joseph Osmundson, Raphaele Chappe, and Ajay Singh Chaudhary return to the program to assess the state of the pandemic and the U.S. and global economy. Has the curve been flattened? Are we in a position, locally and country-wide, to begin “reopening”—and what does reopening mean? What’s the magnitude of the damage that’s been done to the economy? In what ways has the Federal Reserve intervened, and for how much longer can its monetary interventions “work”? Where do we go from here? The conversation gets underway at the 3:29 mark.
