ABSTRACT

Testimony: Addressing the Economic Impacts of COVID-19   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Testimony: "Chairman Yarmuth, Ranking Member Womack, and members of the Committee, thank you for the privilege of appearing today to share my views on the economic and budgetary impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the policy response to its impact. I wish to make three main points: [1] The economic fallout of the pandemic is staggering and unprecedented in our lifetimes; [2] The policy response has been, of necessity, correspondingly large and well-targeted to address the economic problem; and [3] Looking forward, Congress faces the challenge of maintaining a disciplined response while shifting strategies to support growth and economic progress in the presence of the coronavirus."
