Symposium on Learnings from the Global Economic Crisis

Centre for Global Challenges,






In March 2010, CIFAR joined forces with the Centre for Global Challenges to present After The Meltdown: The Limits and Possibilities of Economics.


The symposium brought together three of CIFAR’s preeminent economists – Pierre Fortin (Canada), Tim Besley (UK), and Nobel Laureate George Akerlof (US) – to discuss what the world has learned from the global economic crisis. The event was attended by more than 150 invited senior academics, government officials and business leaders.
