Abstract

Pandemics are only possible because of international travel. But – perhaps surprisingly – in the absence of social distancing a more globalised country will not necessarily suffer a worse outbreak. Pol Antràs (Harvard), Stephen J. Redding (Princeton) and Esteban Rossi-Hansberg (Princeton) set out their new framework to study the interaction between globalisation and pandemics.
