Dimitry Anastakis is the LR Wilson and RJ Currie Chair in Canadian Business History at the University of Toronto in the Department of History and the Rotman School of Management.
A Member of the College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists of the Royal Society of Canada, Anastakis’s work addresses the intersection of business, the state and politics, and globalisation, particularly in the post-1945 period in Canada.
He has published nine books and edited collections, including three books on the development of the Canadian auto industry. His current research looks at the infamous 1970s Bricklin car venture in New Brunswick and its broader meaning in North America, and a project on the issue of free trade in Canada within the context of neoliberalism’s emergence.
Anastakis is the former co-editor of the Canadian Historical Review, was the first chair of the Canadian Business History Association, which he helped launch, and is a former Fulbright Chair in Canadian Studies at Michigan State University.
In 1925, Vincent Massey, the scion of one of the wealthiest families in Canada, did something that Ed Rogers today would find unthinkable. He quit.
