Thursday’s post: Why we do not want to talk about the economic effects
Thursday 14 May | Why we do not want to talk about the economic effects | Caspar Chorus
Now that we seem to have ‘flattened the curve’ and the number of corona victims reduces, our eyes are opened to the ravage the crisis has left. The government is still pressing us to stay home as much as possible, but we are getting restless. We look around and see the damage to our company, family, education or psychology. And the cry for a hopeful perspective gets louder. Yet, we still are reluctant to let go of the measures altogether in order to save the economy. Why is that?
In this short video, professor of choice behavior Caspar Chorus (TPM faculty, TU Delft) explains our reluctance to talk about the economic effects of the corona measures.
Studium Generale created a Corona Care Package to make #StayingIn as pleasant as possible. In the following weeks we will share videos, blogs, articles and podcasts within four focus areas: Mental Health, The World After Corona, Arts & Culture and other online events.
