Inflation continues to weigh on Canadians, and it is not a new phenomenon. Throughout history, decision makers and markets have rallied and tamed the monetary beast before. But each time, the fight to restore price stability and confidence has been different, requiring a policy response that is suited for the unique circumstances of the time. So, what are the characteristics of the global and domestic economic woes we face today? What fiscal, monetary and free market weapons should come to bear? To offer his perspectives we welcome Canada’s 22nd Prime Minister – the Right Honourable Stephen Harper. Prime Minister Harper co-founded the Modern Conservative party of Canada, won three successive national elections in 2006, 2008 and 2011, and lead our economy through the financial crisis. He was most recently inducted into Order of Canada, is an author and Chairman of Harper Associates Consulting and International Democrat Union. Today, with host Pamela Ritchie, we’ll hear Prime Minister Harper’s thoughts on inflation and liquidity. Additionally, the energy transition, cryptocurrencies and the current investment environment, noting we are in a period of macroeconomic and geopolitical turmoil. Prime Minister Harper also looks at geopolitics, including the Russia-Ukraine conflict. He’ll also outline opportunities for Canada.
