Reviews

"The good news: The pandemic took less of a toll on the economy than it might have. The bad news, and thus the paradox of the title: The economic damage will last. As Fulford shows in clear and accessible prose, the world as a whole was unprepared for a devastating pandemic. . . . If you're wondering about the dollars-and-cents effects of the virus, this book makes a lucid guide."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"The pandemic has wrapped up and we are getting books that are auditing our policy response. . . . Scott Fulford's The Pandemic Paradox . . . stuck with me. What we did to reduce poverty was really something, and it's deeply moving to see all the good we did. Then we let it all go."---Matthew Desmond, Boston Globe
"Recommended."-- "Choice"
