On this episode of the Dismal Science podcast, Chief Economist Mark Thirlwell asks if we can successfully put the economy on ice until we get to the other side of the coronavirus crisis.

    As the global economy goes into freefall, policymakers are faced with a dilemma: how do they slow activity enough to halt the spread of coronavirus, while at the same time providing enough stimulus to keep the economy going. Plus, we look at the staggering increase in jobless claims in the US and explain the jobkeeper program.
