State gov’t economic responses to COVID-19 podcast episode

In my latest podcast episode, I elaborate on my opening remarks to the Queensland Parliamentary Inquiry on the state government’s economic response to COVID-19 on Monday.

Among other things, I mention Joe Branigan and Henry Ergas’s new Menzies Research Centre paper COVID19: Getting Australia Safely Back to Work. I also comment on former Premier Peter Beattie’s backing of the Bradfield Scheme, which the state Opposition has committed to commissioning a CSIRO feasibility study of, if it wins office later this year.

Check out the show notes at the link to the episode above for relevant links.
