More about the Book

Economics in One Virus: An Introduction to Economic Reasoning through COVID-19

Economics in One Virus draws on the dramatic events of 2020 to bring to life some of the most important principles of economic thought. Packed with supporting data and the best new academic evidence, those uninitiated in economics will be given a crash course in the subject through the applied case study of the COVID-19 pandemic to help explain everything from why the United States was underprepared for the pandemic to how economists go about valuing the lives saved from lockdowns.
