TABE Chief Economists’ Panel: An Uncertain Future after an Unprecedented Year

December 8, 2020

with Catherine Mann and Douglas Porter

2020 is a year without precedent. From a global pandemic to political instability, the global economy has lurched from one crisis to another. Nowhere is this more true than in North America, where ongoing political uncertainty has loomed over extraordinary policy interventions to combat the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please join Catherine Mann and Douglas Porter as they help us to make sense of where the economy has been and provide insights on where it is going.
