Is Average Over for Canada too?

Organized by the Centre for the Study of the United States, at the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto.

Tyler Cowen is the Holbert L. Harris Professor of Economics at George Mason University and also  Director  of  the  Mercatus  Center. He received  his  Ph.D.  in  Economics  from  Harvard  University   in 1987. Cowen’s book, The Great Stagnation: How America Ate the Low-Hanging Fruit of Modern History, Got Sick, and Will (Eventually) Feel Better, was a New  York  Times bestseller. He  was  recently  named  in an Economist poll as one of the most influential economists of the last decade, and last year, Bloomberg  Business  Week dubbed  him "America's Hottest Economist." Foreign Policy magazine named him as one of its "Top 100 Global Thinkers" of 2011. Cowen’s book, An Economist gets Lunch, deals with the economics of food. His  latest work, Average is Over: Powering America out of the Great Stagnation, focuses on the implications of growing inequality. Cowen co-writes a
blog:  www.marginalrevolution.com,  and  he  has  recently  initiated an on-line  economics education project, MRUniversity.com.
