After COVID-19: Building an Inclusive Economy for California

COVID-19 and its fallout have been devastating for California’s economy at every level. But low‐​income and traditionally marginalized communities have been among the hardest hit. This conference brings together a diverse group of political, business, and academic leaders to discuss regulatory and other barriers to rebuilding economic opportunity in poor and minority communities ravaged by COVID-19.

Economics in One Virus: An Introduction to Economic Reasoning through COVID-19

Economics in One Virus draws on the dramatic events of 2020 to bring to life some of the most important principles of economic thought. Packed with supporting data and the best new academic evidence, those uninitiated in economics will be given a crash course in the subject through the applied case study of the COVID-19 pandemic to help explain everything from why the United States was underprepared for the pandemic to how economists go about valuing the lives saved from lockdowns.
