In episode 4 of The ‘New Normal’ hosted by Dave Kaufman, 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?
The ‘New Normal’ is a collaboration between journalist Dave Kaufman and Delve, the official thought leadership platform of McGill University’s Desautels Faculty of Management. Each episode looks in-depth at a different aspect of the new normal that we are all navigating due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
