In this SIEPR talk, Admati will reflect on the lessons learned and unlearned from the crisis and offer broad observations, using current events and tying back to recent SIEPR discussions, on the complex interactions between corporations and governments and on the positive role that economists, and institutions like SIEPR, can play. She will discuss the urgency and importance of breaking through academic silos and expanding research and teaching so as to elevate the level of public discourse and address our collective action challenges.
