Product Details

Praise

“Gans believes the focus of the pandemic should be about understanding the information problem, and knowing critical facts at every phase of pandemic recovery to suppress future outbreaks.”
—Business Insider

Praise for Economics in the Age of COVID-19

“It’s a shame that policymakers did not have books such as Joshua Gans’s Economics in the Age of COVID-19 to lay out the issues for them in January.”
Nature


“The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed a number of areas where government was unprepared despite years of preparation, but it has also revealed a very un-governmental nimbleness in responding to the economics of the pandemic-induced recession. Economist Joshua Gans says there was no pandemics playbook on how to keep an economy running in a situation like this, and despite the real hardships many are facing today, policymakers have made more right decisions than wrong to this point.”
—Public Radio Tulsa

“Written in an unpretentious conversational style, Economics in the Age of Covid19 (Gans) provides an accessible overview of the past, present, and future economic choices confronting nations grappling against the viral pandemic of Covid-19.”
—Postdigital Science and Education
