“Pandemics and Politics,” a conversation between Jeff Frieden and Dr. Tom Frieden, sponsored by Harvard’s Office of the Vice Provost for Advances in Learning, September 20, 2020.

Two Friedens discuss the political economy of public health. Jeff is a Professor of Government at Harvard, Tom is a former CDC Director. Politics and economics have changed the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the pandemic has changed the course of politics. Why has public health become a political football in the United States? Why has global public health become the focus of international conflict?
