The Price Paradox (Demand Ain’t Dead)
Abstract: Chaos seems to rule in markets at the moment. Prices have been in freefall since mid-2014, and there seems to be no end to the fallout. Many have simply concluded that the cause is world weakness. Are they right, or is there an underlying story that’s not being told? Join us for a walk around the world economy that puts current event in context, with some surprising conclusions.
BIO: Peter Hall joined Export Development Canada (EDC) in November 2004. With over 25 years of experience in economic analysis and forecasting, Mr. Hall is responsible for overseeing EDC’s economic analysis, country risk assessment and corporate research groups. In addition to preparing strategic advice for senior management at EDC, Mr. Hall is a featured speaker at conferences, international roundtables and policy fora, and regularly appears in television, radio and print media commenting on the world economy and Canadian international trade issues.
