We’ve moderated or been panelists in a seemingly endless number of webinars over time. The last few months, as live conferences have swirled away into the maelstrom of the pandemic, their number has multiplied.
With that in mind, we wanted to let you know about a webinar that we think should appeal to anyone who finds their way to the Barrett and Greene, Inc. website. titled “The Post-Pandemic Economic Transition: An All-Star Webinar”. It will be held on October 14 at 1 p.m. eastern time and has been a collaboration between the Government Finance Research Center at the University of Illinois Chicago and the American Society of Public Administration.
A little about this event: The coronavirus pandemic is likely to dissipate at some point in the foreseeable, if uncertain, future. But experts agree that the economy will continue to suffer for years thereafter. With that in mind, the panel will focus on the transitional period between the eradication of the disease and the full rehabilitation of the economy. What challenges will states and localities deal with in that interim period? What solutions can be conjured to those challenges that are anticipated now?
Panelists will include Michael Pagano (Moderator) Dean, College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs, University of Illinois Chicago and Director, UIC's Government Finance Research Center; Amy Liu, Vice president and Director, Metropolitan Policy Program, Brookings Institution; Don Kettl, Sid Richardson Professor, LBJ School of Public Affairs, University of Texas and Senior Fellow, the Volcker Alliance; Mark Zandi, Chief Economist, Moody’s Analytics and Richard Greene (co-moderator), senior advisor of the Government Finance Research Center and principal, Barrett and Greene, Inc.
