Viewpoint explaining that the new framework for the taxi industry should encourage innovation and aim to maximize the well-being of consumers
In Quebec, as in many other places in the world, a permit is required to provide taxi services. For a long time, this has led to a lack of competition and the resulting effects. The Quebec government will soon table a bill to modernize the taxi industry. On which principles should new regulation be based if it is also to serve as a framework for future innovations in the sector?

Policy Paper for the One Country, One Market collaborative campaign showing how Canada can progress toward a true common market
A New Canadian Partnership for domestic free trade could produce economic benefits for Canadians that rival those of international free trade agreements. That’s the conclusion of Professor Ian Brodie, political scientist at the University of Calgary, in a new public policy study for the Montreal Economic Institute, the Atlantic Institute for Market Studies (AIMS) and the Canadian Constitution Foundation.

Is Free Trade Worth It?

The MEI is happy to invite you to the 3rd edition of the IAN SOUTAR Lecture Series.

Ian Soutar Lecture Series 2019

Should free trade agreements focus exclusively on trade, or should they on the contrary include clauses on issues like the protection of workers, the environment, or the rights of minorities?

Should Donald Trump’s approach to international trade be a source of inspiration for governments in other countries, in order to protect workers and businesses?

These are some of the themes that will be debated during this evening, which promises to be both entertaining and informative.

Research Paper explaining how, by transmitting knowledge throughout the food supply chain, middlemen contribute to better and more varied food, while lowering costs for consumers
Although we take supermarkets for granted, our access to such a quantity and variety of food products on demand and at any time of year is absolutely remarkable. This “miracle” is all the more impressive given that it is the result of spontaneous and voluntary collaboration between millions of people, most of whom will never meet. This paper will examine the historical evolution and the current operation of supermarkets and the numerous intermediaries that supply them, using the analytical framework of the Austrian School of Economics.

What Are the Benefits of Economic Freedom?
25 October 2018October 25, 2018
Economic Note responding to some of the most common objections to a social and political system based on economic freedom
A useful and intuitive definition of “economic freedom” is the freedom (absence of coercion) to buy from, or sell to, a willing counterparty. A society based on economic freedom is a free-market society. But is economic freedom economically beneficial? Is it all about money? Is it moral? Aren’t there many exceptions where government intervention is warranted? This Economic Note addresses these questions.
