Vancouver: Consumption City

5:00pm - 6:00pm

Examining Vancouver?s transformation from a productive city into a city of consumption and the rise of precarious employment

On the program, urban economic geographer Elliot Siemiatycki discusses Vancouver?s transformation from a productive city into a city of consumption, dominated increasingly by real estate and tourism. We examine how the city?s structure, feel, and image of itself have shifted over the last three decades ? and how the rise of precarious employment is implicated in this transformation.
