Presentations

'Restarting the Economy while Saving Lives under Covid-19' by Andrea Ichino

Andrea Ichino discusses the findings of his recent paper, jointly written with Aldo Rustichini and Carlo Favero, where they provide, calibrate and test a realistic model of the spread of SARS-Cov-2 in an economy where the population has different age groups and sectors. The model takes into account factors that have proved to be essential in explaining features of the effect of the epidemic, in particular the constraint in the number of Intensive Care Units available in a region and the different response to the epidemic of individuals of different ages. They characterise the policies of containment of the epidemic that are efficient with respect to important outcomes such as number of fatalities and GDP loss.

Andrea Ichino is Professor of Econometrics at the EUI, coming from the University of Bologna, where he was a Professor in Economics.

'Legitimacy in a Time of Covid-19: Lessons from the Eurozone crisis’ by Vivien A. Schmidt

The presentation analyses how to think about legitimacy theoretically, briefly mentioning the main themes of Vivien A. Schmidt’s recent book ‘Europe’s Crisis of Legitimacy: Governing by Rules and Ruling by Numbers’ as an example of the crisis of legitimacy. It then focuses on the problems of legitimacy during the Covid-19 crisis, with examples from EU institutional actors as well as from a wide range of countries. 

Vivien A. Schmidt is Jean Monnet Professor of European Integration, Professor of International Relations in the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies and Professor of Political Science at Boston University, as well as Founding Director of BU’s Center for the Study of Europe.

Chair: David Levine
