Abstract

One of the key political issues during the Covid-19 pandemic has been the extent to which health outcomes should be balanced against the economic costs associated with lockdowns and other virus suppression measures. Reviewing some of the recent evidence, Bernard H Casey writes that it is by no means clear the trade-off between sacrificing lives and sacrificing the economy is as real as has been suggested.
