Industries in Covid-19

Economist articles from Professor Villinski's prompt

Additional links for collections of information

1. Track down "who cares?" about the industry

  • Are there industry associations? (Google industry name + association + to find them. Example: restaurant association
  • Are their government regulators? (For restaurants, think of the local Public Health agency or the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). You can Google industry name + government regulators to find some quickly.)
  • Once you find these organizations, look on their websites for sections called News, Reports, Resources, Education, etc. Some of these resources will only be available to members of the trade/industry association, but many will be available for free.

2. Do some advanced Google searching. Examples:

  • restaurant association covid-19
    • This search returns news and reports from a variety of national and local restaurant associations on COVID-19.
  • "food service" covid-19 filetype:pdf
    • This search returns results for PDFs on US government websites related to the phrase 'food service' and COVID-19.
