In addition to the obvious and too often fatal public health aspects of COVID-19, the pandemic is an unusual and unprecedented economic event.  Three Haverford alums, economic majors all, address how health affects the economic recovery and how to get the economy moving again, how the pandemic has widened pre-existing inequalities and what might be done about that, and the impact that the fiscal and monetary policy response has had. Q & A about the panelists’ work and the state of the world.
