Abstract

The Covid-19 crisis calls for a major policy response from European governments, but should we be cautious about where these actions might lead? Jonathan White explains that while crises are typically when the need for action can seem strongest, it is exactly in such moments that new initiatives should be viewed with caution, since the means and the ends may be distorted.
