John Loxley -- Book Launch

Tuesday Jan 18 2011 8:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in Prairie Ink Restaurant

Aboriginal, Northern, and Community Economic Development: Papers and Retrospectives (Arbeiter Ring Publishing)

John Loxley has worked in community economic development as a practitioner, advisor, teacher and scholar for over 30 years. The wealth of that experience is reflected in this book, which grapples with the conceptual and political complexities of addressing northern and Aboriginal poverty. Loxley examines a number of possible approaches to economic development, placing each within a broader theoretical and policy perspective, and considering its growth potential and class impact. Accessible and theoretically sophisticated, the book blends international development theory with northern Canadian and Aboriginal realities. It includes an important chapter on traditional Aboriginal values and culture and their relationship to the land.

John Loxley has written extensively on community economic development. His innovative work is informed by his experience at the community and senior government levels. He is Professor of Economics at the University of Manitoba, a specialist in international development and finance, a member of the Royal Society of Canada, and winner of the 2010 John Kenneth Galbraith Prize in Economics.
