Lessons from the Bailouts

Since everyone is talking about the pandemic's potential future impacts, and a lot of the policy changes suddenly taking place are things that were technically possible years ago (and known to be beneficial much of that time back) but lacked a catalytic boost, this month's research takes a look at some of the structural changes that the response has highlighted as especially key. It will probably include a look at what the packages have done well (opened up unemployment to contract workers and the self-employed) and what it leaves wanting (too much money to investors, not enough to citizens). Stay tuned for looks at the social safety net, arguable rights of citizenship, and what models we could be using instead of the chaotic patchwork we're working with right now. And, of course, a bit of modestly irreverent commentary on why it's taken so long.
