    DescriptionThe COVID-19 pandemic has caused panic buying in Hong Kong and elsewhere around the world. In this op-ed, I draw upon behavioural public policy research, and discussed how four tools -carrot, stick, sermon, and nudge - can be used to tackle and prevent panic buying in the event of future outbreaks.
