ECONOMIC IMPACT OF ZIKA VIRUS AND LESSONS FROM 2017 HURRICANE SEASON FEATURED TOPICS IN NEW ISSUE OF JOHNS HOPKINS CAREY BUSINESS SCHOOL MAGAZINE
The fall 2017 issue of Carey Business ― the award-winning, twice-yearly magazine of the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School ― is now available online and in print.
The cover story of this new issue, “Zika’s Costly Bite,” notes that while the Zika virus has been in decline, its effects are long-lasting. Carey Business School researchers are among those answering a call to gauge the potentially multibillion-dollar impact of the mosquito-borne virus.
In the second long feature, “Under the Weather,” Carey faculty experts from various disciplines describe some of the lessons learned from the record-setting 2017 hurricane season.
Also, in the magazine’s regular “By the Numbers” infographic, a four-page spread titled “What a Gig!” looks at the growing practice of “remote” work. People across the globe are leaving the traditional workplace in droves to work from home ― or wherever they can get an internet connection.
