The Harry Kitchen Lecture Series. Andrew Coyne presents "Canada's Growth Crisis: Causes, Consequences, and Cures"
Description: Sluggish economic growth has long been a concern for Canada, especially in light of population aging and its costs. Lately, however, slow growth has been replaced by a new and even more alarming prospect: no growth, or even contraction, at least in per capita terms — not just in the short run but, it seems, indefinitely. What are the causes of this crisis? What are the implications? And what can be done about it?
This event will be recorded and live streamed.
