The Data Are In, It’s Time For A Major Reopening, Henderson/Liptow, WSJ

Quote: “For­tu­nately, econ­o­mists no longer have to rely on in­her­ently flawed projections. We can use real data. In what might turn out to be the best pa­per on the eco­nomics of Covid-19, a team of economists from the Uni­ver­sity of Cal­i­for­nia, Berke­ley care­fully eval­u­ated em­pir­i­cal data on so­cial dis­tanc­ing, shel­ter-in-place or­ders, and lives saved. To mea­sure the im­pact of so­cial dis­tanc­ing, they gath­ered data from cell-phones on travel pat­terns, foot traf­fic in nonessen­tial busi­nesses, and per­sonal in­ter­ac­tions…Their find­ings? So­cial-dis­tanc­ing mea­sures re­duced per­son-to-per­son con­tact by about 50%, while harsher shel­ter-in-place rules reduced con­tact by only an ad­di­tional 5%. Then, us­ing data on Covid-19 in­fec­tion and mor­tal­ity, they es­ti­mated that these mea­sures saved 74,000 lives. Fi­nally, af­ter us­ing de­mo­graphic data to ad­just the VSL—which is lower for older peo­ple, who have fewer years to live—the study found that the gross ben­e­fit of so­cial dis­tanc­ing has been a mere $250 bil­lion…That find­ing casts ma­jor doubt on the value of lock-downs and even so­cial dis­tanc­ing as a method of re­duc­ing the spread of Covid-19 [emphasis, CS]. While we can’t yet es­ti­mate a spe­cific fig­ure, the eco­nomic cost of so­cial dis­tanc­ing and lock­downs will likely be more than $1 tril­lion. And that’s an un­der-state­ment of the costs when you con­sider in­creased sui­cides and other so­cial losses not cap­tured in gross do­mes­tic prod­uct. For ex­am­ple, par­ents of young chil­dren have widely noted their kids’ gloomy out­look when not al­lowed to be with friends.” CS Commentary: WSJ Requires subscription, also see, The Data Are In, It’s Time For A Major Reopening, David Henderson, Econ Lib
