Description

Economic shocks can have outsized effects on children, interrupting their growth and development. How well did policy buffer households with children from the economic consequences of the COVID-19 downturn? How did changes in areas like childcare, food and nutrition, and health insurance affect children’s well-being? On this episode, host David Wessel is joined by Anna Aizer, professor at Brown University and co-director of the National Bureau of Economic Research Program on Children, and Claudia Persico, assistant professor at American University.
