Canada: The Global Outlook: How Do You Spell ‘K’?

September 30, 2020 all-day

For its Wednesday, September 30, 2020 meeting, CIM’s Management and Economics Society is pleased to welcome:

Peter G. Hall

Vice-President and Chief Economist
Export Development Canada


who will deliver an online presentation on:

The Global Outlook: How Do You Spell ‘K’?


Abstract: Forecasts are an average of all activity in the economy. They mean a lot less when there’s not much that’s actually average in the details. The sub-surface outlook is all over the map; good strategy these days requires pouring over the details. As the world emerges from the pandemic, it will be more critical than ever to decide what’s hot, what’s not, and who occupies the middle ground. I hope you can join us.


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. He produces a widely circulated print and video weekly commentary covering an eclectic range of current global economic issues.

Prior to joining EDC, Mr. Hall directed the economic forecasting activities of the Conference Board of Canada.
