In the wake of COVID-19, many state governments have instituted lockdowns and other restrictive measures on businesses and private association. Proponents argue that some focused, restrictive measures are necessary to slow the spread of the virus and prevent unnecessary deaths. Opponents, such as the authors of the Great Barrington Declaration, argue that these restrictions impose excessive economic and personal costs on society, and that government should focus on protecting the most vulnerable while allowing herd immunity to develop in society as a whole.

Join USD’s Center for Ethics, Economics, and Public Policy and the Center for Health Law Policy and Bioethics for a debate on this important and timely topic, featuring Phil Magness, economist with the American Institute for Economic Research, and Jeremy Horpendahl, Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Central Arkansas. Moderated by Dov Fox, Professor of Law and Herzog Endowed Scholar at USD.

This event is free and open to all. Please register in advance at https://tinyurl.com/y4fqslu8.
