The big fail : what the pandemic revealed about who America protects, and who it leaves behind / Joe Nocera and Bethany McLean

"From the collaborators behind the modern business classic All the Devils are Here comes a damning indictment of American capitalism--and the leaders that left us brutally unprepared for a global pandemic In 2020, the novel coronavirus pandemic made it painfully clear that the U.S. could not adequately protect its citizens. Millions of Americans suffered--and over a million died--in less than two years, while government officials blundered; prize-winning economists overlooked devastating trade-offs; and elites escaped to isolated retreats, unaffected by and even profiting from the pandemic. Why and how did America, in a catastrophically enormous failure, become the world leader in COVID deaths? In this page-turning economic, political, and financial history, veteran journalists Bethany McLean and Joe Nocera offer fresh and provocative answers. #COVID19 #Economics #FinancialHistory #Pandemic
