Radio Corona, Apr 16: Nelson Mark on reopening the economy and what the US can learn from China
In this episode of Radio Corona on April 16 at 4 pm ET, Gideon Lichfield, editor in chief of MIT Technology Review, speaks with Nelson Mark, economics professor at the University of Notre Dame, about the economic impact of covid-19, how we should think about pandemics as economic risks, and how the US should be thinking about its economy as it compares to China’s. They will also be taking your questions.
Mark is an expert in the macroeconomics of China, a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), and the North American editor of the Pacific Economic Review. With states like California already starting to make tentative plans for reopening as soon as May, we will be asking Mark what the US can learn from China, where the city of Wuhan came out of 76 days of strict lockdown only earlier this month.
We will stream the conversation right here on Thursday, April 16 at 4 p.m. ET.
It will also be available on our Facebook page and YouTube channel. Please submit your questions for Nelson Mark via this form ahead of time, and we will do our best to ask them during the interview.
