The Fiscal Policy Response to COVID-19

June 08, 2020 • 10:00 AM • Virtual

The coronavirus pandemic has upended American capitalism and forced the federal government to spend unprecedented sums of money to support struggling consumers and businesses. Thus far, Congress has enacted four separate pieces of legislation, costing approximately $2.4 trillion, with many arguing that more is needed to prevent Great Depression levels of unemployment and reduced economic activity. Please join us via Zoom to hear the Global Financial Markets Center's executive director, Lee Reiners, speak with Vanguard's global chief economist, Joe Davis, about the efficacy of the fiscal policy response to date and what more can, and should, be done.
