Coronavirus and the economic value of human life – Thursday 25th May, 6pm

On our weekly Definite Article livestream, IEA Academic and Research Director Professor Syed Kamall will interview IEA Head of Regulatory Affairs Victoria Hewson and our Economics Fellow Julian Jessop. The discussion will centre around the IEA’s new report, The Economic Value of Human Life or.. Is the Lockdown Worth It? It will examine whether now is the time to ease restrictions – has the balance tipped even between the health and economic costs? And as we lift lockdown, what restrictions on our civil liberties will remain in place? What role will track and trace play?

Watch tonight, Thursday 25th May, at 6pm here.
