Abstract

This perspective provides thoughts on the burgeoning interdisciplinary literature surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on both individuals and firms with a particular focus on the heterogeneity in government responses. In particular, we discuss disparities in vaccine distribution, government policy responses, and impacts in low-income versus high-income countries, as well as lessons learned from the pandemic. We describe an important source of data in this area and provide ideas for future examinations in this critical area of research.
