Basseterre, St. Kitts, September 09, 2019 (SKNIS)
Featured Speaker for the 2019 edition of the Prime Minister’s Independence Lecture Series, Dr. Colin Cannonier, will deliver an insightful and thought-provoking presentation centered on education and its broad aspects when he takes the stage at the Sir Cecil Jacobs Auditorium at the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank on Thursday, September 12.“A significant part of the presentation revolves around education in its broad aspects. It is well established that those who are more educated tend to experience higher wages and salaries. However, there is more to education than these pecuniary benefits. Today, economists know so much more about these nonpecuniary (that is non-income related) benefits which have a far greater economic and social impact on our societies relative to the more developed world.
