The financial crisis that has hit the United States and the rest of the world has raised several questions. What were its causes? Why didn’t we see it coming? Will the measures taken by government be sufficient to prevent a global recession? Are other measures required? What consequences will the crisis have for the US, Canada, and the rest of the world? The four accomplished economists on this panel will provide their answers to these questions and engage in a discussion with the audience.
Clément Cignac is chief economist at National Bank Financial; Serge Coulombe and Jean Boivin are full professors at the University of Ottawa and HEC Montreal, respectively; Daniel Racette is full professor and director of the Institute of Applied Economics at HEC Montreal.
