Are Lockdowns Justified? An Interview with Onkar Ghate

Are statewide lockdowns the right approach in this pandemic? What is government’s proper role in the face of infectious diseases? What would a truly American, pro-freedom response to Covid-19 look like?

Alex Epstein interviewed Onkar Ghate, senior fellow at the Ayn Rand Institute, about these and many related topics on a special, two-hour episode of the Power Hour podcast. Epstein, the show’s host, is founder of the Center for Industrial Progress, author of the bestselling The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels, and a former ARI fellow.
