US economist and Nobel Prize winner Paul Romer drew up a 10-page paper on how economic activity could be relaunched before an effective vaccine for the COVID-19 is available. Its central motto is clear: Testing, testing, testing.
By following this strategy, infected people can be identified and isolated from the healthy population, so that everyday restrictions are as low as possible and healthy people can pursue their normal economic and social activities.
But his demands have not yet been heard sufficiently: “Testing is still short of being where it needs to be. We may be facing an economic crisis akin to the Great Depression of 1929”, Paul Romer says.
In the digital, online joint meet-up of the Global Behavioral Economics Network (Collaboration between VBEN and ZBEN) on July 15, 2020, Nobel prize winner Paul Romer will talk in an interview with Prof. Dr. Nora Szech (Chair of Political Economy, at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) about the topic“COVID-19 – will economy and society survive a second wave? And: How you will profit from proper testing! Interview with Nobel laureate Paul Romer.”
