Towards a Better World describes the life, times and perspectives of Gerry Helleiner, a Canadian activist and university-based economist, who worked for roughly 40 years with developing countries and international organizations. In his memoir, Towards a Better World, Helleiner recounts the profound early experiences in Africa that propelled him into a rewarding career devoted to research, advice and teaching in international economics, economic development and global poverty reduction.

Join Gerry Helleiner, in dialogue with Antoinette Handley of the University of Toronto Department of Political Science, as he discusses the experiences and insights behind his new book. Introductory remarks by Stephen Lewis. Books for purchase and refreshments available.
