The Prescription: Fiscal Policy for the COVID-19 Economy with Glenn Hubbard
This week’s guest: Glenn Hubbard, Professor of Finance and Economics at Columbia University
The Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center (TPC) is holding a series of online conversations on policy responses to the COVID-19 economy. The discussions take place every other Thursday afternoon and feature varying perspectives on the historic economic challenges faced by the United States and the world and the best ways to address them.
This week’s guest is R. Glenn Hubbard, Russell L. Carson professor of finance and economics and director of the Jerome A. Chazen Institute for Global Business at Columbia University. Hubbard previously served as deputy assistant secretary of the US Treasury Department from 1991 to 1993 and as chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers from 2001 to 2003.
He’ll talk with TPC senior fellow Howard Gleckman (@howard_gleckman) about the pandemic relief proposals being debated in Congress and overall US economic policy.
