Looking Forward: How Can We Safely Reopen the Economy? - Livestream

Pressure is mounting to reopen the economy, and some locales are rushing to do so. Deciding how and when it’s safe for people to return to work, school, and public life is a complex topic that involves implementing widespread testing; accurate assessment of exposure risks; ensuring health care system capacity; putting in place procedures and routines to protect workers; setting guidelines for mass behavior changes; and restoring public trust. How can we go about making these decisions and getting plans in place? A panel of experts from the Haas School of Business and the School of Public Health will engage in an interactive discussion on what needs to happen to reopen businesses and get people back to work while protecting public health and preventing a second wave of coronavirus infections. The panelists will be:

  • David I. Levine, Professor and Chair of the Economic Analysis & Policy Group at the Haas School of Business
  • Maya L. Petersen, Co-chair of the Graduate Group in Biostatistics and Associate Professor of Biostatistics and Epidemiology at the School of Public Health
  • Jennifer A. Chatman, Professor in the Management of Organizations Group and Associate Dean of Learning Strategies at the Haas School of Business
  • Jonathan Kolstad, Associate Professor in the Economic Analysis and Policy Group at the Haas School of Business, the Economics Department, and the Graduate Program in Health Management
