The Price of Panic : How the Tyranny of Experts Turned a Pandemic Into a Catastrophe
by Jay W. Richards and William M. Briggs and Douglas Axe




Overview -
WHAT JUST HAPPENED?

The human cost of the emergency response to COVID-19 has far outweighed the benefits. That's the sobering verdict of a trio of scholars--a biologist, a statistician, and a philosopher-- in this comprehensive assessment of the worst panic-induced disaster in history.

As the media fanned the flames of panic, government officials and a new elite of scientific experts ignored the established protocols for mitigating a dangerous disease. Instead, they shut down the world economy, closed every school, confined citizens to their homes, and threatened to enforce a regime of extreme social distancing indefinitely.

And the American public--amazingly enough--complied without protest. Modestly but relentlessly focused on what we know and don't know about the coronavirus, Douglas Axe, William M. Briggs, and Jay W. Richards demonstrate in this eye-opening study what real experts can contribute when a pandemic strikes.

In the early spring of 2020, the panic of government officials, the hysteria of the media, and the hubris of suddenly powerful scientists produced a worldwide calamity. The Price of Panic is the essential book for understanding what happened and how to avoid repeating our deadly mistakes.
