This graduate seminar-style training program teaches journalists how to use an economic lens to analyze Canadian and global policies. The complexity of some policy issues is daunting. While economic reasoning doesn’t guarantee resolution of the issues, it is a powerful tool for critical thinking. The ability to determine opportunity cost, identify incentives, and predict resulting behavior will help journalists set aside the emotion surrounding policy issues and bring clarity to the discussion of current events.
