Michel Tougas (Towers Perrin Canada) offers suggestions for maintaining economic competition despite Montreal’s shrinking workforce. Michel Belley (rector at the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi) speaks about the importance of small communities in Quebec’s overall development.

Gérald Larose (visiting professor at the Université du Québec à Montréal) explains the effects of liberal globalization, which he describes as a system that helps encourage the creation of accessible and affordable global markets.
