Does the Global Financial System Work for Us?

There has been an incredible rise in the size and scope of the global financial system over the last few decades. Has the growth in finance been good for the economy? Has it made us more productive? Does finance help protect the middle class against economic shocks? If not, what can be done to make finance more useful?

Professor Atif R. Mian, co-author of House of Debt, will answer these questions in his keynote lecture, followed by a conversation with CBC's Amanda Lang.

Date: Thursday, April 2
Time: 5:30-7:00 pm
Location: Isabel Bader Theatre, 93 Charles St West
Admission is free by registration.
