Economic Policymaking in Practice:

In conversation with Mike McNair

We are living through unprecedented times for policymaking. But policy isn’t made or implemented in a vacuum. To deliver on political commitments takes a knack for communicating a vision and an understanding of how the machinery of government works. To provide a better understanding of the often closed world of taking policy ideas from the election platform through Parliament and then to the public, we have the great fortune of being joined by long-time political insider and economic policy expert, Mike McNair. From Stephane Dion to Justin Trudeau, Mr. McNair was at the table when some of the most hotly-debated economic policy ideas of the past 15 years were developed, and he has kindly agreed to sit down with TABE to share his wealth of experience.
