You are invited to the Wednesday, November 30th meeting (at 4:15pm) of the Discussion Group of CIM’s Management and Economics Society, for a presentation by:
Peter G. Hall
Vice-President and Chief Economist, Export Development Canada
who will deliver a presentation on:
The Great Hesitation
Abstract: The US economy is healthy and still has lots of runway. Europe is gaining momentum. India is on a roll, and for all the worries, China is still packing a lot of punch. So, why all the discontent? Why are we talking about undoing all of the economic architecture that is helping the global economy to finally get back on its feet again? Hear answers to this with a perspective on the effect that Brexit, the US election and Canada’s recent export experience is having on the outlook for the global economy, Canada’s performance and near-term prospects for the mining sector.
