Lancement du livre: Do central banks serve the people? @ Librairie Paragraphe Bookstore15:15 – 17:00
Lancement du livre Do central banks serve the people?, de Peter Dietsch, François Claveau et Clément Fontan.
Central banks have become the go-to institution of modern economies. In the wake of the 2007 financial crisis, they injected trillions of dollars of liquidity – through a process known as quantitative easing – first to prevent financial meltdown and later to stimulate the economy. The untold story behind these measures and behind the changing roles of central banks generally is that they have come at a considerable cost. Central banks argue we had no choice. This book offers a powerfully original examination of why this claim is false. Using examples from Europe and the US, the authors present and analyse three specific concerns about the way central banks in developed economies operate today. Firstly, they show how unconventional monetary policies have created significant unintended negative consequences in terms of inequalities in income and wealth. They go on to argue that central banks may have become independent of governments, but have instead become worryingly dependent on financial markets. They then proceed to analyse how central bankers, despite being the undisputed experts on monetary policy, can still err and suffer from multiple forms of bias.
Participeront au lancement: Peter Dietsch (Université de Montréal), François Claveau (Université de Sherbrooke) et Juliet Johnson (McGill).
Sharon Bassan (Princeton University) @ Salle TBD14:00 – 15:30
Dans le cadre de leur Ateliers de la bioéthique, les membres de l’axe Éthique et santé du CRÉ sont heureux.ses d’accueillir Sharon Bassan (Princeton University), qui offrira une présentation intitulée « Surrogacy – On Reproductive Labor and Labor Law ».
This talk aims to explore whether labor law is an appropriate mechanism to regulate cross-border surrogacy. Work-related arguments concerning surrogacy usually support the view that commercial surrogacy deserves some sort of remuneration. In this talk, I do not oppose commercial surrogacy per se, but rather argue that not all forms of work are part of the labor market, and not all forms of earning in the market are necessarily work. I focus on the conceptualization of surrogacy as work, the surrogate as a worker, and on labor law, which should accordingly be assumed appropriate for regulating such markets. To do that, I analyze the purpose of labor law and the conceptual framework of work and worker, and examines their applicability to the conduct of surrogacy arrangements.
Sharon Bassan is a second year Postdoctoral Research Associate with a joint appointment in the University Center for Human Values and the Woodrow Wilson School’s Office of Population Research in Princeton University. A bioethicist, with a PhD and JD in law, Sharon is interested in issues of health law/policy and bioethics, in particular in the areas of the ethics of reproductive technologies, health markets, global health governance and global justice. Her current project is a book about the regulation of cross-border surrogacy.
