New Normal: COVID-19, Ethics, and Stock Tips with Patrick Augustin

Protected: Home

Hosted by Dave Kaufman, featuring Professor Patrick Augustin from the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University


In episode 4 of The “New Normal, Professor Patrick Augustin from The Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University examines the allegations of insider trading levied against former Georgia Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler at the dawn of the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Should politicians be held to a higher ethical standard when lives are at stake? And, if politicians aren’t allowed to trade stocks, will they no longer want to go into politics?
