Global outlook: In search of an anchor

11:30am-1:30pm | One King West Hotel - 1 King St. W. , Toronto

Is the global economy heading toward “secular stagnation”? Or are we on the cusp of an economic renaissance? That’s the question facing policymakers, investors and businesses eight years after the deepest financial crisis of modern history. What’s clear is that the world economy is in the middle of an unprecedented transition. What’s less clear is the direction in which that transition is evolving.

Join us for a luncheon on September 30th, as Jean Boivin, Managing Director and Deputy Chief Investment Strategist at the BlackRock Investment Institute, explores the puzzles and contradictions presented by today’s global economy, and discusses the steps policymakers and investors can take to effectively navigate this complex, shifting landscape.

The discussion will be moderated by Andrew Coyne, Editor, Editorial and Comments, National Post, and member of the At Issue panel on CBC's The National
