Gigi Foster : The Economics of a Pandemic
Deep Trouble PODCAST
with Dr Mark Halloran
In conversation with Professor Gigi Foster from University of New South Wales School of Economics and co-host of the ABC Radio National talk-radio show and podcast series The Economists. We discuss ideas such as a statistical life and quality-adjusted life years in regards to the COVID19 pandemic, and her view that the closure of borders and severe lockdowns in Australia were a mistake, even if the worst case scenario of 150,000 deaths were to eventuate.
