Description

Mario Macis, associate professor of economics at Johns Hopkins, will give a Hopkins at Home lecture entitled, "Economics & Ethics in the Allocation of Scarce Resources."

From toilet paper to hand sanitizer, as the COVID-19 outbreak grew into a pandemic, people began sweeping the shelves, both physically and virtually, of these necessities. For some, these items were for their personal use, but for others, a financial opportunity had presented itself. Join Mario Macis as he explores the economic and ethical impacts of these decisions in a time of crisis.
