Who Is This Economy Working For? | The Agenda

The Organization for Economic Development and Cooperation (OECD) predicts that Canada will be the worst-performing advanced economy over the next decade https://bcbc.com/insights-and-opinions/oecd-predicts-canada-will-be-the-worst-performing-advanced-economy-over-the-next-decade-and-the-three-decades-after-that

While the top 20% of households hold almost 70% of all the net worth in the country, wages have been virtually stagnant for 50 years. It begs the question: Who Does The Economy Work For? Steve Paikin is joined by:

Brett House, Economist, Professor of Professional Practice at Columbia Business School and Fellow with the Public Policy Forum
