In this episode of the AIER Standard, Ethan Yang sits down with the incoming president of the Public Choice Society, Christian Bjørnskov, who is the author of an award-winning paper on the use of emergency powers. The conversation explores why and how emergency powers paradoxically cause greater problems during periods of crisis, the most recent being the Covid-19 Pandemic. Furthermore, Chris offers insight into how Scandinavian countries like Denmark and Sweden keep their political leaders accountable beyond legal limitations, which are ultimately just words on paper.
Chris is a professor at Aarhus University and a researcher at the Research Institute of Industrial Economics in Stockholm.
