What information do we need to introduce good economic policies? Have we learned anything from the pandemic? In the Talking Economics Podcast, Katarína Stehlíková talks with Filip Pertold and takes a closer look at data and its role in effective government.

"We’ve learned from the Covid-19 pandemic that data is the key to keeping track of  a pandemic and focusing on  policies that will help the economy," Filip Pertold said.
