As the American economy entered 2020, it was extending the longest expansion in modern economic history. However, this progress was truncated by a global pandemic that pushed the economy into recession by March of this year. In this session, seasoned economists Ben Scafidi and Roger Tutterow review the pre-COVID-19 economic climate, consider plausible scenarios for economic and public health recovery and likely policy responses, and suggest best practices for managing our way through the current health and economic crisis. The session will include suggestions on how independent schools should “audit” themselves for the upcoming challenges and allows for an interactive discussion of best practices.
