Industrial Policy for Canada in a post-COVID World

The world was changing prior to COVID-19.

Technology and geopolitics were transformed by the rise of intangible capital and its tendency towards a "winner-take-all" paradigm. One manifestation was a new U.S.-China "cold war." Another was the rise of big global tech giants. COVID-19 has exacerbated these trends.

Join us as our panel aims to make sense of these developments by examining what they mean for Canada, and what Canadian policymakers should do about them.

Moderated by JSGS Senior Policy Fellow Dale Eisler, this panel features:

- Robert Asselin, Fellow at the Public Policy Forum
- Edward Greenspon, President & CEO of the Public Policy Forum
- Sean Speer, Fellow in Residence and Prime Minister of Canada Fellow at the Public Policy Forum
