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 Great Enrichment is easily the most important secular event in history, but what makes us think that it was because of changes in ideas and rhetoric rather than material causes and exploitation? This interview will explore how ideas matter for long-run economic change as well as how we know ideas matter.

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.
