This assignment is based on the Externalities and Incentives: The Economics of COVID video.

This assignment highlights the challenges of creating and deploying a vaccine: both vaccine usage and production have large social benefits that aren't always internalized by the individual deciding to get a vaccine or the firm deciding to develop a vaccine. By watching the video and answering the questions below, your students will see an example of a time when understanding economics can mean the difference between life and death (and billions of dollars)!
