ABSTRACT

Congress Should Focus on Pandemic Control and Fix the CARES Act for an Economic Rebound   [open pdf - 202KB]

From the Key Takeaways: "[1] Congress must focus on containing the coronavirus through targeted, temporary measures that keep workers attached to employers and avert widespread business failures. [2] Stimulus spending on unrelated projects would do nothing to reduce the virus's spread and will likely impede an economic recovery. [3] While the American people fight the pandemic, Congress should resist further policy mistakes and fix problems introduced in the hastily drafted CARES Act [Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act]."
