| One of the great liberal thinkers of our age, he is a world renowned economist and writer who has contributed much to the discussion of Western economics and politics for the last half of the twentieth century. While his economic theory has sparked debate, particularly among academics, his talent for communicating with the public has made him an influential commentator on the American and Canadian economic systems. He has been a trusted advisor to Heads of State, a respected scholar and a stimulating mentor to generations of students at Harvard University.
