Can $2 Trillion Prevent Another Great Depression?


April 21, 2020 • 5:00 pm PDT

President Trump signed a $2 trillion bipartisan relief bill designed, in part, to protect people from the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic. But is it best characterized as a stimulus package, a bailout, an emergency relief plan, or something else?

Moderated by Loyola Law School professor Jessica Levinson, this panel makes sense of what the relief bill is designed to do, whether it goes far enough, and what else our public officials should be doing to guard against another economic depression. The panel will also discuss how people can spend their federal checks to spur the economy.
