David Dodge appears on BNN Bloomberg to discuss:
- his thoughts on the Federal budget and how it factors into his inflation outlook;
- what the federal government should be considering vis-à-vis debt issuance since the Bank of Canada’s quantitative easing program is over; and
- whether or not the Bank of Canada is still aiming for a neutral rate of 2-2.5% in the next 12-18 months.
He says that at this time of slow growth and inflation, Ottawa and the central bank should be focusing on reducing economic uncertainty for the private sector.
Look out for our upcoming Economic Outlook for more insights from David and our Public Policy Group on this matter.
