At the time of the writing of this article (early April 2020), the number of confirmed cases of the Coronavirus globally had just passed 1,400,000. Over a quarter of those cases were in the United States, where almost 13,000 deaths were attributed to the virus. Schools and many businesses are closed. Passenger transportation networks, particularly air travel, have ground to a near halt. We are encouraged to stay home and to distance ourselves from others.

Perhaps we’ll write about how this will change higher education in another blog post. Today, however, we seek to gain some insights about healthcare and economic lessons learned over a century ago during the Spanish flu pandemic. These takeaways include the value of social distancing combined with economic policy to more effectively mitigate the health and economic tragedies.

Last summer my colleague, Dr. Adam Jones, Chair of the Department of Economics and Finance, and I finally got serious about a project that we had contemplated for quite a while – the development of an online course in Personal Finance. We are both passionate about the strong need existing for enhanced exposure to these topics. We speculate – and certainly not because we are the developers – that this could easily be the course which provides the most value added during a college career.
