Pandemic Economics, Paperback / softback Book

Pandemic Economics Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Pandemic Economics applies economic theory to the Covid-19 era, exploring the micro and macro dimensions of the pre-pandemic, pandemic, and post-pandemic phases.

Using core economic tools such as marginal analysis, cost-benefit analysis, and opportunity cost, this book explores the breadth of economic outcomes from the pandemic.

It shows that a tradeoff between public health and economic health led to widespread problems, including virus infections and unemployment.

Taking an international and comparative approach, the book shows that because countries implemented different economic policies, interventions, and timelines during the crisis, outcomes varied with respect to the extent of recession, process of recovery, availability of medical equipment, public health, and additional waves of the virus.

Pedagogical features are weaved throughout the text, including country case studies, key terms, suggested further reading, and discussion questions for solo or group study.

On top of this, the book offers online supplements comprising PowerPoint slides, test questions, extra case studies, and an instructor guide.

This textbook will be a valuable resource for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate courses on pandemic economics, macroeconomics, health economics, public policy, and related areas.
