About this Event
Host Organization: Department of Economics
A public presentation by Michael Munger, Professor of Political Science, Economics, and Public Policy at Duke University.
Professor Munger will argue that there have been two enormous “revolutions” in human history. The first was the Neolithic revolution, or the wide scale switch from a nomadic hunter-gatherer lifestyle to fixed agriculture. The second was the industrial revolution, or the wide scale concentration of production in processes that took advantage of the division of labour and capital-intensive work. Michael Munger thinks that the sharing economy is the start of a third great revolution, and he\'ll explain how he thinks it will shape our future.
A joint event hosted by the Carleton Undergraduate Economics Society and the Carleton Graduate Economics Society, and sponsored by the Institute for Liberal Studies.
Pizza and soft-drink reception in Tory Building Foyer, followed by the presentation in TB 342.
