On September 1, 2020, The National Academies published its Discussion Draft of the Preliminary Framework for Equitable Allocation of COVID-19 Vaccine (See it at: https://www.nap.edu/catalog/25914/discussion-draft-of-the-preliminary-framework-for-equitable-allocation-of-covid-19-vaccine
). Public comments are being accepted on this discussion draft until midnight, Friday, September 4. It appears there are no economists on the Committee that drafted the report. Given that economics in part studies the allocation of scarce resources, the lack of economists seems short-sighted. Or maybe it is a result of the report's focus on equity rather than efficiency? I would like to submit to the Committee refereals to any economists whose work could inform the report. Who are you? Thanks!
