Pandemic Information Gap and the Brutal Economics of COVID-19

Joshua Gans

A guide to the pandemic economy- essential reading about the long-term implications of our current crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic has unleashed a firehose of information (much of it wrong) and an avalanche of opinions (many of them ill-founded). Most of us are so distracted by the everyday awfulness that we don’t see the broader issues in play. In this book, economist Joshua Gans steps back from the short-term chaos to take a clear and systematic look at how economic choices are being made in response to COVID-19. He shows that containing the virus and pausing the economy–without letting businesses fail and people lose their jobs–are the necessary first steps.
