This Thesis Proposal Review proposes research on the link between infectious disease, contact behaviour, government policy and the macro-economy in light of the 2002/03 Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) outbreak. Aimed at breaking free of traditional “cost of illness” approaches, this seminar will review time-series econometrics methods for estimating both monetary and non-monetary consequences of outbreaks.
