The Research Network Macroeconomics and Macroeconomic Policies FMM organises its 18th annual conference on Inequality and the Future of Capitalism with introductory lectures on heterodox economics for graduate students. As the outbreak of the financial crisis approaches its seventh anniversary, large parts of the world economy are still in stagnation. The financial system remains highly fragile, and high levels of unemployment and income inequality are posing a serious threat to social peace and political stability in many countries. Some commentators even see the world economy doomed to secular stagnation with high levels of unemployment being the new normal.

Funded by CFI, this is the first research centre in Canada to study the on-line learning of history. Innovative approaches, such as eye-tracking analysis, are used to study the methods and quality of virtual learning, to clarify the needs of on-line learners, and to develop the models and contexts that lead to improving the design, presentation and evaluation of web sites, simulations and learning materials in history classrooms.
Recent research projects include "The Virtual Historian: Digital History in the Canadian Classroom" www. Inhe was nominated by the Council of Ontario Universities for the Award for Excellence in Teaching with technology.
