Launch of the book « Social Democracy, Capitalism, and Competition: A Manifesto »


Thursday 9 Nov 2023
From 5PM To 7PM

On Thursday, November 9, 2023, the book “Social Democracy, Capitalism, and Competition: A Manifesto” was launched. This book is by author Marcel Boyer, Emeritus Professor of Economics at the Université de Montréal, researcher and Fellow CIRANO.

Our social democracies and welfare states face economic and governance challenges that threaten their very survival. Against this backdrop, "Social Democracy, Capitalism, and Competition: A Manifesto" argues that a true social democracy requires a clear definition and a refocusing of the roles of the public and private sectors.

Using his novel competition-based social democracy and new competition-based capitalism models, Marcel Boyer goes back to the basics. Returning to the foundational characteristics of what social democracy and capitalism are supposed to be, he reimagines how public and social goods and services - such as education, healthcare, and transport infrastructure - can be provided in a way that aligns with citizens’ best interests.

The conference was followed by a cocktail in the presence of the author.

This event was held in French with slides in English.
