Join Peter Hall, Export Development Canada’s Vice President and Chief Economist, from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Dec. 1 to hear EDC’s latest thoughts on the global outlook for Canadian businesses.
The year 2015 was a tumultuous one, without question. Or was it?
Bad U.S. weather, West Coast port strikes, collapsing commodity prices and the unravelling of the Greek economy and its relationship with the Eurozone conspired to make the first half of the year an upset when it came to economic growth.
Then came China with its currency devaluation, causing emerging market currency turmoil and unrest in the equity markets, sending hopes for recoveries into a downward spiral.
But maybe things aren’t as bad as they seem. After not making a move in September, the Federal Reserve System is gearing up for what is expected to be its first interest rate increase in seven years, a change that surely signifies good news for the U.S. economy.
So what of these contradictory signs? Join Peter Hall, Export Development Canada’s Vice President and Chief Economist, in a webinar from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Dec. 1.
