Robert Kaplan, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, told Fox Business that widespread mask-wearing is the best way to help the economy recover from the downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Said Kaplan: “If we all wore a mask, it would substantially mute the transmission of this disease and we would grow faster. We would have a lower unemployment rate. We’d grow faster. And would be far less likely to slow some of our reopenings. But we’ve been uneven so far on our mask-wearing.”Save to Favorites
