In a health and economic crisis such as the one brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, and governments’ responses to it, the MEI has a crucial role to play. It is our job to examine the unintended consequences for individuals and businesses of various laws and rules, in contrast with their stated goals. It is also part of our mandate to shine a light on the fiscal policies of governments and to study their effect on economic growth and our standard of living.

Here is a list of the content put out by the MEI since the beginning of the crisis.
