Episode 12: Economic Health Check-in With Andrew Leach, ’20 LLM

Description

The human cost of the COVID-19 crisis can’t be overstated, but an important secondary story is the economic toll of the pandemic. With recent Canadian job losses in the millions, when might we see a gradual market recovery? In this episode we ask renowned economist and UAlberta School of Business professor Andrew Leach, ’20 LLM, about the future of Alberta’s economy, the efficacy of government emergency relief programs, and the feasibility of a Green New Deal.

This episode was recorded on June 5, 2020. At the time, there were 7,052 cases of Covid-19 in Alberta.
