Economist To Lead Talk on Economic Development
Prince George, B.C.- Monday May 30th, economist and author Michael Shuman will head up a workshop in Prince George focused on economic development and how communities can prevent money from leaving the community. Shuman is one of the North America’s leading experts on community economics and the advantages of small-scale businesses in an era of globalization. He will present a “local living economies” approach to economic development that focuses on building up local businesses and inviting community participation.
As part of the workshop, he will guide participants through a “leakage analysis” of the community to find out where money is leaving, and to discover ways to plug those leaks.
The workshop is set for 1-5 Monday at Hubspace 1299 Third Avenue. While the event is offered at no cost, anyone wanting to take part will have to register by clicking here.
Shuman’s stop in Prince George is one of five he will make in the coming days, he is also scheduled to visit Quesnel, Vanderhoof, Hazelton, and Smithers
