"America today faces the greatest threat to freedom as we’ve known it in many generations. The reason and occasion: a pandemic disease. It and the policy response to it has changed fundamentally almost everything we used to take for granted: the right to earn a living, the right to travel, the right to associate, and even hope in the future itself. The calamity has been unparalleled, with social, economic, and political consequences yet unknown. All we really know is that nothing will be the same."
The American Institute for Economic Research (AIER) has produced a book written by their researchers in real time as the Coronavirus crisis has unfolded, including a contribution from our own Art Carden, associate professor of economics.
