COVID-19 and its Policy Tradeoffs: An Assessment

Virtual event via Zoom

Join us for a discussion of the pluses and minuses of various approaches to handling the coronavirus pandemic from the perspective of public health and the economy. Think of it as Sweden vs. Taiwan and how the experiences of those countries should inform US policy.


The event will start promptly at 7:00 and will begin with a moderated panel discussion, which will be followed by a Q&A session.

Audience members will be able to submit questions during the panel discussion via the chat feature in Zoom.

Open discussion and audience participation is a hallmark of the Langenberg Speaker Series, so the Q&A session will make up a significant part of the program, which will end at 8:30.
