2023: The Post-Pandemic Economy

We live in very strange economic times. The stock market, inflation, housing prices, bank failures, the cost of eggs—everything feels volatile in this post-pandemic world. No one has written more incisively about the current economic landscape than The Atlantic staff writer ANNIE LOWREY. Why is our banking system so prone to crisis that once a decade the authorities must step in to save it? Why have the U.S. economy and job creation been so resilient despite the turmoil in financial markets? Why is housing so expensive, and what can be done about it? And how did the pandemic transform attitudes toward work in the U.S.? In conversation with LIAQUAT AHAMED, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Lords of Finance, Lowrey will help us understand what is going on and how we, as a country and as individuals, can navigate these days of economic uncertainty.
