Dr. Bill Scarth

Professor of Economics (retired), McMaster University

Bill Scarth was a Professor of Economics at McMaster for many years before retiring in 2016. He has received both the President’s Award for Excellence in Instruction and several McMaster Students Union Teaching Awards including the MSU’s highest honour – their Lifetime Achievement Award for Teaching.

In addition to publishing many articles in academic journals (in the areas of macroeconomics, labour economics, international trade and public finance), Dr. Scarth has authored four textbooks, and he has been a Research Economist at the C.D. Howe Institute, Canada’s leading non-profit policy institute, for over 20 years. Some of his recent work concerns how globalization affects the ability of governments to provide support for those living on low incomes, and to deal with the tensions between young and old that have emerged with increased concern about the environment and our aging population.
