This series of eight presentations focuses on two areas of economic challenges: how we can foster growth in average living standards, and how we can address income inequality. Many specific topics are considered – such as: the facts on income inequality, the particular challenges facing women and indigenous Canadians, the effectiveness of alternative government initiatives, and how globalization and caring for the environment affect those policy choices.
Part A – Sept. 12 and 19
Growth in Average Living Standards: the Challenges
Part B – Sept. 26, Oct. 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31
