Philosophers' Café

  • Manav Sekhri

    Manav Sekhri learned a lot of formal economic theory while at university. After graduating he moved around, tried new things, and decided to stay in the Vancouver region—for the parks and the weather. He believes, now more than ever, in the value of honest conversations and their ability to broaden one's horizons. If he had a cat, he would probably name it Curiosity.

Admission: Free. Registration not required.

Duration: 90 mins
