Professor Paul Frijters of the London School of Economics will explore the unseen victims of the coronavirus panic. Combining his expertise in economics and experience of the United Kingdom’s disastrous handling of the pandemic, Professor Frijters will provide insight into the long-term impacts of the government’s response to COVID19. He asks whether the cure has been worse than the disease and calculates that 10 million lives may have already been lost. This is the first in the AIP’s COVID19: Causes, Consequences, and Cures Seminar Series and is guaranteed to shake up the mass media narrative.

Professor Frijters is originally from the Netherlands, and spent 15 years in Australia. In 2009 he was voted the best economist under 40 by the Economics Society. He is in the top 1% of cited economists in the world. Beyond his experience as a health and labour economist, Professor Frijters also focuses on wellbeing economics and public policy. He is also an advisor to the UK government.

The Australian Institute of Progress’s COVID19: Causes, Consequences, and Cures Seminar Series will be hosted online via Zoom. Access and Q&A opportunities are included in the event ticket cost. A weblink to access the video conference will be emailed out to you prior to the event.
