Anne-Marie Slaughter is the CEO of New America, a think and action tank dedicated to renewing the promise of America, and a Professor of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University. From 2009–2011, she served as director of policy planning for the United States Department of State, the first woman to hold that position. Glen Weyl is a political economist and social technologist whose work focuses on harnessing computers and markets to create a radically equal and cooperative society. He is the Founder and Chairman of the Radical x Change Foundation, a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research and a lecturer at Princeton University. Today, Slaughter and Weyl will discuss the recently released Roadmap to Pandemic Resilience, published by Harvard’s Edmond. J Safra Center for Ethics.
Anne-Marie Slaughter and Glen Weyl describe the Safra Center’s promotion of a TTSI approach - Testing, Tracing, and Supported Isolation. They believe that the only way to successfully contain COVID-19 is to ramp up testing, increase contact tracing and isolate those who have been exposed or infected. Although this will need to be done in a way that respects civil liberties, this is our best shot to save lives until a vaccine is available.
