Professor and Chair of Economics Anoshua Chaudhuri featured in report on unemployment during COVID-19

Professor and Chair of Economics Anoshua Chaudhuri shared her expert opinion in a WalletHub report on pandemic-related unemployment. 

Chaudhuri discussed the effectiveness of government aid, saying "This money is hardly enough to pay for a month of bills for the average middle-class household, let alone create new demand. This money was most likely used to pay for food and rent, pay down debt, or saved for the rainy day. Further, this is also a unique situation where a lot of high-income earners have also lost their jobs and have received no relief."
