Prof. Miana Plesca

Prof. Miana Plesca, Economics and Finance, was interviewed by the Globe and Mail Feb. 6 for a story on federal government plans to boost employment. The article said the Liberal government plans to develop the FutureSkills Lab, a program to train people for the jobs of the future. Plesca said governments have traditionally proven poor in anticipating the needs of the labour market. Employer-initiated programs have been shown to be more effective than government skills training programs, she added. Plesca studies labour economics and program evaluation.
