Why can you tip your waiter, but not your teacher?

Why can you compensate a surrogate mother, but not buy a baby?

And what do you precisely buy when you buy a song in the Apple store?

Does the manner in which clothing was produced, and where, change its value?

Dr. Erwin Dekker will discuss how cultural meaning shapes transactions on markets, and how the legitimacy of trade often depends on shared understandings within society.

Erwin Dekker is a post-doctoral researcher at the Erasmus School of Economics in Rotterdam, Netherlands. He is also assistant professor in cultural economics at the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication and has been post-doctoral fellow at the Economics Department of George Mason University. He has recently published ‘The Viennese students of Civilization’ (2016) with Cambridge University Press.

A pizza lunch will be provided!

This event will be co-hosted by MacEwan Idea and Social Club and the Institute for Liberal Studies and will be taking place at MacEwan University in room 7-286 at 2:00 p.m.
