The Post-pandemic Economic and Financial Outlook: More stress and volatility Ahead with Stephen Poloz

In addition to COVID-19 and geopolitical stresses, there are other tectonic forces acting on the future of the global economy including population aging, rapid technological progress, and the transition to net zero carbon emissions. Combined with exploding indebtedness and rising income inequality, these forces have the potential to create historic outbreaks of economic and financial volatility, political polarization, and international tensions.

Drawing from his new book, The Next Age of Uncertainty, Stephen will explain how these same forces have interacted to produce major historical events, such as the Great Depression of the 1930s. He will examine the post-pandemic outlook to provide guidance for adapting to a riskier future.


Due to the nature of this event, please note that refunds will not be issued after August 9.

We ask organizers and guests of McGill-sponsored events around the world to follow local guidelines and policies to lower the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
Even where masks are no longer obligatory, they remain strongly encouraged.
