Canadian Student Review - Spring / Summer 2009

Printer-friendly version


Our Spring / Summer 2009 issue of Canadian Student Review features articles written by students, for students, addressing and challenging the public policy matters of today.

This issue offers perspectives on the regulation of financial markets, the efficacy of Canada's recent GST cuts, and why students shouldn't worry about their co-op job prospects during the economic downturn. This issue also includes a special feature, Understanding economics in the news (pg. 4), which provides a critical analysis of the media's representation of the recession.

CSR welcomes all students to submit articles on economics and public policy-no experience necessary. Check out the back cover of this issue to find out how you can get published in CSR.

Best Wishes,

Courtenay Vermeulen, Assistant Editor
