Political Rewind: The Anatomy Of A Decision

Apr 16, 2020

Thursday on Political Rewind, the ongoing public health crisis has given doctors, public officials and many Georgians a series of challenging decisions as society grapples with an unprecedented situation.

On our show today, we discuss how somber decisions regarding public health such as who gets ventilators or an ICU bed, or how vaccines are tested are made.


But, additionally, decisions are being made by everyday people. Am I harming anybody by going on a walk in the park? Is it right to order food or package delivery and possibly put those workers' lives at risk?

Also on today’s show, the instincts to blame a particular group of people for any crisis – in this case Chinese and Asian Americans.

Panelists:

Jackie Cushman – Republican Strategist

Kevin Riley – Editor, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Paul Root Wolpe, Ph.D. – Emory University, Director of the Center for Ethics
