We are extremely excited to have Stephen Poloz, the former Governor of the Bank of Canada, kick off our 2022 Eye of the Executive In-Person Series in partnership with Focus Asset Management, on April 6th. Stephen is a widely recognized economist with nearly 40 years of experience in financial markets, forecasting, and economic policy, including 35 years in the public sector.
The economic ground is shifting beneath our feet. The world is becoming more volatile, and people are understandably worried about their financial futures. Stephen Poloz maps out the powerful tectonic forces that are shaping our future, and the ideas that will allow us to master them in his new book, The Next Age of Uncertainty: How the World Can Adapt to a Riskier Future. These forces include an aging workforce, mounting debt, and rising income inequality. Technological advances are adding to the pressure, putting people out of work, and climate change is forcing a transition to a lower-carbon economy.
The implications of these tectonic tensions will cascade through every dimension of our lives—the job market, the housing market, the investment climate, as well as government and central bank policy, and the role of the corporation within society. The pandemic has added momentum to many of them. This is your chance to get a glimpse into the strategic mind of a financial, trade and economic policy expert and ask your burning questions of what's to come.
This in-person event is by invitation-only. Please reach out to Joanna Thommee at email@example.com, to see if you are eligible to attend.
