    Sweden’s “Lighter touch” Approach – A Cautionary Tale or A Candid Lesson?

    Is socially responsible capitalism the best antidote against pandemics ? What can we learn from Sweden’s response to the Covid 19?

    Sweden’s “lighter touch” approach to the Covid-19 surprised the World, not only by its uniqueness but also by its effectiveness. While many factors may be at play here, Sweden’s response to the public health crisis and its immediate economic consequences raise the question as to whether socially responsible capitalism is the best “societal” antidote against pandemics.

    In this interactive seminar, Michael Bucher explores the institutions and governance structures that not only enabled but shaped Sweden’s management of the COVID 19 health crisis.

    Instructor: Michael Bucher

  • Aviation Deregulation – Who’s Benefiting?
    Seminar
    6:30 pm-8:00 pm
    2020.08.13

    Aviation Deregulation – Who’s Benefiting?

    How did deregulation impact the airline industry? Did it make the consumer better or worse off?

    Deregulation is a public policy concept that appears to support Adam Smith’s invisible hand metaphor, advising against government meddling in the free exchange of information, planning, cooperation, and production of commodities and services. However, Smith recognized the need for secure contracts and other police protections (regulations), fundamental to any social enterprise. In this seminar, Dr. Marty Rowland addresses the following question – What was the consumer’s experience prior to and after the deregulation wave in the aviation industry? Did this popular philosophy bear out its promises, or was deception part of the package all along?

    Instructor: Dr. Marty Rowland
