Abstract

Many of the most important decisions we make involve a trade-off over time. We make short-term sacrifices to achieve long-term goals. We invest time and money in our education and training to improve our future job prospects. We forgo consumption today to save for a deposit on a house. The list goes on and on. What has this got to do with the COVID pandemic? Everything.
