On November 13th, A Second Opinion joined with the Princeton University Griswold Center for Economic Policy Studies and Princeton’s Center for Health and Wellbeing for Part 3 in a series, on the fiscal, monetary and health policy response implications of Covid-19. You can hear Part 1 and Part 2 of this series in our podcast episodes numbers 48 and 69.
For our discussion, I’m joined by Princeton’s leading economic and health policy experts:
- Jessica Metcalf, Assistant Professor of Ecology, Evolutionary Biology & Public Affairs,
- Alan Blinder, the Gordon S. Rentschler Memorial Professor of Economics and Public Affairs, and a former Vice Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System,
- And Dr. Bill Dudley, former president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and now Senior Research Scholar at the Griswold Center for Economic Policy Studies.
In this wide-ranging discussion, we cover the latest vaccine science, the implications of a Biden Presidency for fiscal and monetary policy, and Covid-19 relief, and the impact of the rapidly growing federal debt.
