Since his appointment to McGill in 1989, Chris Ragan has taught a wide variety of courses, at undergraduate and graduate levels, and in 2007 he was awarded the Noel Fieldhouse teaching prize in the Faculty of Arts. His passion for teaching extends also to his writing. Ragan is the co-author with Richard Lipsey of Economics, which after thirteen editions is still the most widely used introductory economics textbook in Canada.

He has published several articles in academic and policy journals including Economica, Labour Economics, Canadian Journal of Economics, Canadian Public Policy, Canadian Business Economics, Policy Options, and the Bank of Canada Review. His 2004 book, co-edited with his McGill colleague William Watson, is called Is the Debt War Over? Dispatches from Canada’s Fiscal Frontline. In 2007 he published A Canadian Priorities Agenda, co-edited with Jeremy Leonard and France St-Hilaire from the Institute for Research on Public Policy.

Ragan teaches microeconomics regularly for McKinsey & Company, a leading international consulting firm, and also teaches in McGill’s Executive MBA program and in EDHEC’s MBA program in Nice, France. Ragan received his Bachelor’s degree in economics in 1984 from the University of Victoria and his Master’s degree in economics from Queen’s University in 1985.
