A global economy still adjusting to COVID is now facing added stresses posed by the war in Ukraine, sanctions against Russia, supply disruptions, fragmentation of the trade environment, inflation, and financial market vulnerability. After years of shortage of demand, policy authorities and businesses in Canada and globally have to deal with a supply-constrained world.
In this presentation of the Bennett Jones Economic Outlook, senior advisors David Dodge and Serge Dupont reviewed how the economic outlook will be shaped by the interaction of many global factors. They discussed the challenge of central banks and governments to bring demand and supply into better balance, and the challenge of businesses to capitalize on opportunity and to invest in the future while preparing for potential adverse economic scenarios.
