John Foster, an energy economist and expert on the world oil scene, will speak at Wilfrid Laurier University Monday, November 2.

Foster is an economics and law graduate from Cambridge University. His published work on this topic includes a report for the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, a Toronto Star op-ed article and a chapter in Afghanistan and Canada: Is there an alternative to war? (Black Rose Books, 2009).

The lecture takes place Monday, November 2, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in Bricker Academic Building Rm. 209. Laurier’s Faculty of Arts and the departments of Economics, Global Studies, Political Science, and Geography and Environmental Studies are cosponsoring the event.
