Jim Stanford - Economist with Unifor 


Talk description: 

Jim Stanford is an economist with Unifor, the union formed in 2013 from the merger of Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) and the Communication Energy and Paperworkers (CEP). Jim received his PhD in Economics from the New School for Social Research in New York, and also holds degrees from Cambridge University and the University of Calgary. He is the author of Economics for Everyone (first published in 2008), which has been translated into 6 languages, and has just been issued in a second edition by Pluto Books. 

The Centre for Learning, Social Economy & Work (CLSEW) is a hub for academics, community practitioners, labour, nonprofit, and co-operative educators and researchers. CLSEW’s education and research activities foster a greater understanding of the often under-recognized contributions of the social economy and the dynamics of work and learning in Canadian society and internationally.
