New Podcast Episode: What’s the Next Legislative Response to COVID-19?
It’s The AAF Exchange — your source for clear, data-driven insight into today’s economic and domestic policy issues.
Our latest episode features AAF President Douglas Holtz-Eakin discussing the federal government’s ongoing response to the coronavirus pandemic, including the Federal Reserve’s announcement today that it will buy loans to support the economy. He explains why it is better not to think of the government’s response thus far as “economic stimulus,” and discusses what Congress should consider in future response packages — and when it should act.
Holtz-Eakin assessed the federal unemployment-insurance supplement and proposals to extend it in today’s Daily Dish email newsletter, “Helping and Over-Helping People in Response to COVID-19.” Subscribe to the Daily Dish here.
