The HELP! (HEaLth and Pandemics) Econ working group aims at connecting people working on health and pandemics across different research institutions and fields. It will do so by hosting a weekly Zoom seminar where scholars present their ideas, including those at a preliminary stage, and connecting initiatives, including data collection, policy discussions, and research papers.
Organizers: Mariacristina De Nardi – University of Minnesota; Arindrajit Dube – UMass Amherst; Alessandra Fogli – Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis; Wojciech Kopczuk – Columbia University; Jonathan Skinner – Dartmouth; Ivan Werning – MIT
Our choice of webinar
Issues addressed: Will deaths of despair increase during the COVID-19 crisis? Will inequality increase? What about inequality of health outcomes: which groups die more or get sick more? Is there a difference between the U.S. and Europe? And some thoughts on the long-run effects of the crisis.
(Duration 60 min)
…and a 24-hour global webinar
It is already clear that the COVID-19 pandemic will have dire economic consequences, and collective thought is being applied to what policies can better ensure societies’ resilience and their quick and dynamic recovery once the crisis is over. Corporate governance scholars can also help policymakers devise sound and effective policies for this purpose. This global webinar will convene scholars, practitioners and policymakers with the aim of advancing the decision-making process.
