Name of creator
Economist Albert Breton has lectured and written widely on economic theory and policy, including nationalism, bilingualism, public choice, and the economics of culture. A special advisor to the Prime Minister in the 1970s, he collaborated with his brother Raymond, Pierre Trudeau and others on a public manifesto against Quebec separation.
Breton was also vice-chair on the Applebaum-Hébert Committee, and a commissioner with the Macdonald Royal Commission, and served as president of the Canadian Economics Association.
His academic career took him from the University of Montreal and Carleton University to Harvard, the London School of Economics, the Université de Paris I (Panthéon-Sorbonne), Università di Perugia and the Institute for Social and Economic Change in Bangalore, India. Today, Breton is a research professor with the Università di Torino and professor emeritus of economics at the University of Toronto, where he taught for 26 years.
In 2000, Cambridge University Press published a collection of essays in his honour. Breton is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and an Officer of the Order of Canada.
