Paul Krugman on Pandemic Economics and the Path to Recovery

The global spread of COVID-19 has placed the United States economy in a “medically induced coma,” Paul Krugman writes. Around the world, governments are rallying to implement measures to provide a lifeline to their economies, all the while falling back on age-old public and financial policies that have not been put under such stress in decades. But the nature of the current crisis, with its complex entanglement of economics, geopolitics, and public health, may require an equally far-reaching response. Nobel Laureate and The New York Times’ Paul Krugman joins the Council to the discuss the economic outlook and path to recovery.
