Richard Epstein is the Inaugural Laurence A. Tisch Professor at NYU School of Law. He has served as the Peter and Kirstin Bedford Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution since 2000. His newest book, The Dubious Morality of the Modern Administrative State, was published by the Manhattan Institute in November 2019. Today, he will discuss the impact of COVID-19 on higher education and the questionable assumptions that have been drawn from many COVID-19 models.
Professor Epstein believes Americans have largely been given a false choise between either entirely shutting down our economy or letting COVID-19 run rampant through the population. He believes there is a much wider array of outcomes depdendent on variables we don’t yet fully understand. But overall, he believes the country should have a bias toward trying to safely reopen as fast as possible.
