Was the decision of governments in Australia to bring on a recession to fight COVID-19 the right one?
How do governments trade-off the misery caused by COVID-19 and the misery cause by mass unemployment?
Is spend, spend, spend the right response from government?
As we bring the pandemic under control, what should be the priorities of governments?
Ethos CRS recently assembled a crack team to discuss the policy choices facing governments in a COVID-19 world. We held a webinar discussion—Policy challenges and COVID-19 on 19 May 2020.
The webinar was hosted by Kate Wall, a former chief political correspondent for ABC Radio’s flagship programs, AM, PM and The World Today and a former media adviser to a minister for foreign affairs.
Kate was joined by Chas Savage, Chief Executive Officer, Ethos CRS, and a former adviser to the treasurer; Barbara Livesey, Principal, GAPP Consulting and a former CEO of Reconciliation Australia; and Paul Tilley, a Visiting Fellow at the Tax and Transfer Institute at the ANU, Senior Fellow at the Melbourne University Law School and author of a history of the Australian Treasury.
