This Week's Guest: Irena Asmundson
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 experts with various perspectives on the historic economic challenges the United States and the world are facing and the best ways to address them.
This week, our guest is Irena Asmundson, chief economist for the California Department of Finance. She’ll talk with TPC senior fellow Howard Gleckman (@howard_gleckman) about how California’s economy is coping with the concurrent challenges of the pandemic and wildfires.
