Economics for Everyone, 2nd Ed.: Book Tour!

The second edition of Economics for Everyone: A Short Guide to the Economics of Capitalism was co-published by Pluto Books, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, and Fernwood Publishing this summer.  With the federal election now safely behind us, I am pleased to announce a series of book launch events in 4 cities.  Details are below; each event will feature a talk by me, Q&A, reception, and book-signing.  Many thanks to the CCPA offices in each location which are hosting the tour, and to Unifor for its ongoing support.

The book will be available for sale at each event, $25, all proceeds go to the CCPA.  (It can also be ordered on-line through the CCPA here.)
