TFAS Podcast: Fighting COVID-19 with Free-Market Principles

//////////////////////

Dr. Anne Bradley, TFAS George and Sally Mayer Fellow for Economic Education and  Academic Director, joins TFAS for a discussion of how the power of the market can be unleashed to help us fight COVID-19.

As an economist and professor who teaches young people how to view the world through and economics lens, Dr. Bradley breaks down how we can use economic principles to understand and confront this crisis. We talk about what the private sector and governments should and should not be doing to boost our economy and how deregulations, businesses and individuals are providing aid.

We need the market now more than ever. No one government, no one leader, no one bureaucrat can design a solution to this problem. So what does that mean? It means we have to work together to solve the problem. And so, we need to unleash human creativity as fast as we can right now – that’s the lesson of economics.” – Dr. Anne Bradley
