Andrew Young — December 17, 2014

Anita McGahan, Network member and Associate Dean of the Rotman School at the University of Toronto, recently took part in a discussion of the sharing economy, its current impacts and where it will go next for CBC Radio.

The discussion, which examines “who wins, who loses and what’s destined to change if a sharing economy is sustainable: business, society or the state,” is a “special 2-part event produced by IDEAS in partnership with  The Munk School of Global Affairs. Featuring economic and social theorist Jeremy Rifkin, author of The Zero Marginal Cost Society: The Internet of Things, the Collaborative Commons, and the Eclipse of Capitalism along with a stellar panel of economic and political thinkers, including lawyer, mediator and political leader Bob Rae, economist and author Anita M. McGahan, and moderator Janice Stein, Director of the Munk School of Global Affairs. Part 2 airs Thursday, December 18.”
