Event Summary

The presentation was a great example of simple and elegant model-based empirical macroeconomic and epidemiological work. It demonstrated the iniquitous economic and health impacts that lockdowns might have on high and low skilled workers, as well as proposed the magnitude of transfers from a central planner that might induce better outcomes. The discussion was succinct and made many useful suggestions to the authors on how to connect to the literature, motivate some of their theoretical assumptions and elaborate their framework.
