This graduate seminar-style training program teaches journalists how to use an economic lens to analyze policies in Canada and around the globe. Some policy issues are dauntingly complex, and while economic reasoning doesn’t guarantee that the issues can be resolved, it nonetheless provides a powerful tool for critical thinking. The ability to determine opportunity cost, identify incentives, and predict resulting behaviour will help journalists set aside the emotion surrounding policy issues and discuss current events clearly.
