EUGENE KONTOROVICH: Paying People For Quarantines. “Aside from being fair – spreading the costs across taxpayers rather than letting them fall entirely on innocent individuals – compensation offers several practical advantages. First, it reduces avoidance and hiding from quarantines. Given that those needing to be quarantined have the best knowledge of whether they fit the profile, promoting voluntary compliance is a major, life-saving benefit. Second, decreasing the hardship of quarantine should reduce the political reluctance to impose such measures at the appropriate time – early, before things have gotten out of hand.”
