Regulating In Pandemic: Evaluating Economic And Financial Policy Responses To The Coronavirus Crisis, Hiba Hafiz, Shu-Yi Oei, Diane M. Ring, Natalya Shnitser

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

The United States is currently trying to manage a fast-moving public health crisis due to the coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19). The economic and financial ramifications of the outbreak are serious.
