WHO: Paul Lirette, Senior Economist, Dept. of Fisheries and Oceans

BIO: Paul is a senior economist with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) and is posted in Halifax, Nova Scotia. His main role is to help develop medium term forecasts for international fish and seafood markets. Before joining DFO, Paul gained 5 years of experience as part of the Canadian Agricultural Outlook modeling team at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and another 5 years of experience in various international projects modeling agriculture markets.  Paul has also worked at Finance Canada as part of the G20 Framework Working Group, and has significant international experience working on a number of projects for the British and Canadian Embassies and an independent think tank in Warsaw, Poland; for the OECD in Paris, France; and, for the European Commission’s Joint Research Consortium in Seville, Spain. Paul is currently pursuing his PhD at the Warsaw School of Economics and his thesis work is the focus of this presentation. 

DESCRIPTION: The theory of economic growth has a rich empirical past, including the pioneering work of Solow (1956), Romer (1986), and Lucas (1988). However, experts have arrived at little consensus when determining which factors increase or hinder economic growth. The goal of this study is to place the economic growth determinant discussion within the context of the Canadian economy, particularly by comparing the Atlantic Canadian economy to national level trends.
