In her address to the IIEA, Professor Yueh argues that the consensus around an optimal economic system has broken down and that the COVID-19 pandemic has added impetus to a re-evaluation of economic policy. By drawing on the lessons from history and key insights from history’s greatest economists, and from her book, The Great Economists: How Their Ideas Can Help Us Today, Professor Yueh examines ways to rebuild a new economic consensus suited for the current global economy.
