Robin Boadway and Christopher Cotton were invited to participate on the RSC working group. Prof. Boadway is an Emeritus Professor and a leading authority on tax policy and basic income guarantees. Prof. Cotton is the Director of the JDI and the Jarislowsky Deutsch Chair in Economic Policy, and has been heavily involved in the modeling and analysis of COVID-19 lockdown policies since the beginning of the crisis.
In December, the RSC working group released a Policy Briefing based on their work, “Renewing the Social Contract: Economic Recovery in Canada from COVID-19.”
