Creator and Host
Eric Winsberg (South Florida) and I consider the challenges of modeling the pandemic, the failure to collect data that would enable more effective models, and how social, policial, and cultural factors can influence methodological decisions largely "unconstrained" by available data.
In this episode we discuss the impact of the pandemic on global poverty, the role that intellectual property plays in vaccine development and distribution, and the ethical and economic case for a "People's Vaccine." My guest is economist Sanjay Reddy of the New School for Social Research
Responsibility for Debt and Crisis
With many countries likely to face sovereign debt crises in years to come as a result of the pandemic, Anahí Wiedenbrüg (Oxford) and I discuss the sources of these crises and the responsibilities that governments, creditors, and NGOs have to ensure that servicing this debt doesn't lead to further economic and humanitarian crises.
