Dr. David Laibson

The onset of COVID-19 in 2020 produced a dramatic change in economic activity. Join economist, professor, and Pearson author David Laibson for a look at the real economy, asset markets, monetary policy, and fiscal policy. Special focus will be given to contrasts between the real economy (e.g., a period of record-setting unemployment), the financial economy (record-setting stock prices), and the impact of the COVID-19 vaccine.
