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.

You have heard of the Seven Deadly Sins—envy, gluttony, greed, lust, pride, sloth, and wrath. But there are several deadly economic sins as well—mistakes in economic reasoning that we make routinely, and almost instinctively, but that have deleterious effects not only in our personal lives but also when they find their way into public policy. In this brief presentation, Dr. Otteson will draw on his new book, Seven Deadly Economic Sins, to focus on two.

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.
