About the Program

Join Free Market Institute scholars for a panel discussion and Q&A on how the policy response to the COVID-19 pandemic relates to our economy, our freedom, and our health.

Benjamin Powell, Ph.D. will discuss the economic rationale for the government imposed lockdowns and whether they are sensible policies. Alexander Salter, Ph.D. will explain how the Federal Reserve engaged in radical new programs that were ineffective, threaten the long run independence of the Federal Reserve, and violate long-established principles for monetary policy. Gilbert Berdine, M.D. will explore the health consequences of lockdowns and whether a case can be made that such lockdowns actually cost lives overall.

Following the all the panelist presentations, members from the in-person audience will have an opportunity to ask the panelists questions to further expand upon the information presented.
