Professor Emeritus, McMaster University

Bill Scarth – the series organizer – is Professor Emeritus in the Economics Department at McMaster University. 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), Bill has authored four textbooks (22 editions in all), and he has been a Research Economist at the C.D. Howe Institute – contributing to policy debates – 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.
