Cornell University economist Robert H. Frank discusses how COVID-19 will impact economic policy, such as public investments in medical research and hospital surge capacity. For Frank, concern over the pandemic has hit close to home; his youngest son is on the front lines as an EMT in Ithaca, New York. Frank is the Henrietta Johnson Louis Professor of Management in the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business. He is the author, most recently, of Under the Influence: Putting Peer Pressure to Work.
