Bio-ERA: Thinking Ahead

Bio Economic Research Associates has now published its first report examining possible outcomes of a flu pandemic, Thinking Ahead: Anticipating Early Impacts of an Avian Influenza Pandemic.  The report, and the associated research service, are designed to help answer the following questions:

  • What key indicators and signposts should the business community be watching with respect to pandemic influenza?
  • If human transmissible H5N1 broke out in Asia, what specific actions (travel advisories, quarantines, travel restrictions, etc.) should we expect to be implemented by governments and public health authorities?
  • How would these actions impact regional and global economies, and businesses operating within and/or interconnected with, affected regions?
  • How would these developments affect investors and financial markets?
