Government Action and Inaction in Response to Covid-19
The Covid-19 pandemic has over the course of the spring resulted in global public health and economic crisis. Although there have been variations in government responses throughout the world, the United States has been particularly criticized for its action and more specifically inaction to stabilize communities throughout the ongoing shelter in place. As a result, much debate has emerged on the tension between ensuring public safety and avoiding economic collapse. This lecture intends to give an overview of the monetary actions taken by U.S. policymakers to address the crisis and explore the possible alternative routes that could have been taken.
