#12: Managing the macroeconomy and COVID-19 - Prof. Michael McMahon (Oxford)
In this episode I am joined by Prof. Michael McMahon of the University of Oxford. Prof. McMahon is also a member of Ireland’s Fiscal Advisory Council. We had arranged this discussion some time ago before the COVID19 outbreak, with the original plan to cover the fiscal and monetary tools used to manage the economy. However, given recent developments we also discuss the response to COVID-19 (this episode was recorded on 30th of March 2020).
Hopefully we can fill in the gaps when it comes to understanding the various policy levers before going on to discuss their role in managing the current crisis.
