Fraser Institute | Dances with Dependency: Out of Poverty Through Self-Reliance

Are you interested in economics, political science or public policy? Join us for our Explore Public Policy webinar series to supplement your post-secondary education and dive into the subjects that matter most to you!

Over the course of the semester, we are hosting several public policy webinars that each highlight a unique public policy issue followed by an open Q&A sessions.

These webinars are a great way to engage and connect with Canada’s #1 think tank as well as other policy experts and students who can share experience, and answer your questions.

Solutions are offered to the poverty inherent in indigenous cultures, developing nations, and inner city populations, which have become disempowered by long-term overreliance on mainstream political, social, and economic programs developed for their benefit. Calvin Helin explains that these welfare systems easily divest recipients of the resources and mind-sets necessary to become self-sufficient. Solutions range from instituting policy reform and enhancing cultural development to reframing dependency mind-sets. The outcome is an enhanced ability to partner with mainstream initiatives and help create wealth and opportunity.

This webinar will include a 30-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute question and answer period where attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions directly to the presenter.
