    Can a Bank Change? The Evolution of Monetary Policy at the Bank of Canada 1935–2000

    Lecture Gordon Thiessen Faculty of Social Science, University of Western Ontario
    Over this period, there has been a fundamental transformation in the way monetary policy is conducted in Canada and in most other industrial countries. While globalization and technological change have played an important role in this area, as in so many others, they have not, to my mind, been the principal driving force behind this transformation. Far more important has been the interaction of experience and economic theory.
