Economics of Disasters Online

Economics of Disasters Online looks at a variety of natural disasters of the past – from the Black Death of the Middle Ages, to Hurricane Katrina, as well as the recent SARS and COVID-19 pandemics – through the lens of economic analysis. The contexts were chosen to facilitate the teaching of economic reasoning principles in history, current events, and other social studies courses in addition to economics.
