The corona crisis is keeping the world in suspense and will also determine the further course of the American election campaign. In this America’s Choice episode, Tyson Barker, Deputy Director and Fellow at the Aspen Institute Germany, and David Deißner, Executive Director at Atlantik-Brücke, analyze the results of the Democratic primaries in Florida, Illinois, and Arizona. In what way were the primaries affected by COVID-19? How will the pandemic impact future primaries and election campaign events? In the second part of this podcast, David Deißner talks to the Deputy Chairman of the Atlantik-Brücke, Prof. Dr. Michael Hüther, Director of the Institute of German Economics and member of the Executive Board, about the economic dimension of the corona crisis. He explains the economic impact of the pandemic on both sides of the Atlantic, the effectiveness of aid packages, and the social dimension of the expected economic crisis.
