This week’s guest: Jed Kolko, Chief Economist, Indeed.com
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’s guest is Jed Kolko (@JedKolko), chief economist for the job site Indeed.com. He’ll talk with TPC senior fellow Howard Gleckman (@howard_gleckman) about how the pandemic is reshaping where and how we work and what data from Indeed and other sources can tell us about the state of the economy and possible trends in public health.
