Vaccine mandates will boost NC economic recovery, UNC-Chapel Hill professor says

Christian Lundblad, the Richard Levin Distinguished Professor of Finance at the Kenan-Flagler Business School at UNC-Chapel Hill, says the state's economic recovery is uneven because many people don't want to work in situations where they're exposed to coronavirus. Vaccine mandates in businesses will help alleviate those fears and draw more people back into the workforce, he says.
