The Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center 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 that the United States and the world are facing and the best ways to address them.
Our next guest is Lisa D. Cook (@drlisadcook), professor of economics and international relations at Michigan State University. She will talk with Tax Policy Center senior fellow Howard Gleckman (@howard_gleckman) about the COVID-19 pandemic’s effects on growth and the economic implications of racial inequality.
