CWEC/CFEC participates in the meetings of the Canadian Economics Association (CEA), held in early June of each year. We typically sponsor a number of sessions and host a lunch with a keynote speaker. The links to below provide summaries of CWEC/CWEN’s activities in CEA meetings in recent years.
The CWEC/CWEN luncheon has been a feature of the meetings for over two decades, and has become one of the conference highlights. With a cap of 30 attendees in 1995, we had a record 140 people attend in 2016, and have had amazing speakers.
The 2021 CWEC/CFÉC Keynote Lecture speaker was Emi Nakamura, and the title of her talk was, "Is the Phillips Curve Getting Flatter?" Emi is the Chancellor's Professor of Economics at the University of California at Berkeley. Her research focuses on monetary and fiscal policy, business cycles and macroeconomic measurement.
