This is the audio version of The Reason Livestream, which takes place every Thursday at 1 p.m. Eastern.
The COVID-19 pandemic and the government’s response to it cost millions of lives and trillions of dollars and resulted in a major hit to global freedom. What should governments, private companies, and individuals do differently next time disaster strikes?
Alec Stapp, co-founder of the Institute for Progress, has assembled a team devoted to analyzing and applying the lessons of the pandemic. The institute has published papers arguing that Operation Warp Speed was a success that should be duplicated, for greater investment in indoor filtration, and for better biosurveillance. Stapp joined Reason’s Zach Weissmueller and Liz Wolfe for a live conversation about how to prevent the next global catastrophe.
