Economics Professor, Frank Diebold presented Entering the Pandemic: The Joint Progression of COVID-19 and Economic Growth in the U.S. for the University's 60 Second Lecture Series.
Every spring and fall, Penn Arts & Sciences faculty take a minute to share their perspectives on a variety of topics. This semester the talks will examine social institutions in an era of social distancing.
The summer of COVID-19 has obviously been challenging. Social isolation, economic hardship, and questioning of our government and collective response to the pandemic has combined with reinvigorated demands for racial justice. In this series the School of Arts and Sciences has asked faculty to share their observations on our social institutions, the role they play, and whether they’re working.
