Joining the podcast to explain the federal government’s response and potential future intervention is Angela Vossmeyer, Assistant Professor of Economics at Claremont McKenna College and a Faculty Research Fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research. Dr. Vossmeyer’s research interests include econometrics, simulation-based inference, financial economics, financial crises, and economic history.
