Event Description

Are you interested in economics, political science or public policy? Join us for our Explore Public Policy webinar series to supplement your post-secondary education and dive into the subjects that matter most to you!

Over the course of the semester, we are hosting several public policy webinars that each highlight a unique public policy issue followed by an open Q&A sessions.

These webinars are a great way to engage and connect with Canada’s #1 think tank as well as other policy experts and students who can share experience, and answer your questions.

The most damning criticism of markets is that they are morally corrupting; as we increasingly engage in market activity, the more likely we are to become selfish, corrupt, rapacious and debased. Drawing from empirical studies and relying on work that understands the market as a discovery and entrepreneurial process, Choi’s presentation explores whether or not engaging in market activities is morally corrupting and invites us to reassess the claim that markets corrupt our morals.

This webinar will include a 30-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute question and answer period where attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions directly to the presenter.
