Pandemic Information Gap and the Brutal Economics of COVID-19, Paperback / softback Book

Pandemic Information Gap and the Brutal Economics of COVID-19 Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


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.
