On Feb. 3, 2009, APEC will host a lively debate in Halifax among four economists on the current economic crisis and what lies ahead for Atlantic Canada. Expect an insightful and thought-provoking discussion as panelists address topics such as:
· The economic downturn: Is the worst behind us?
· The impact in Atlantic Canada: Who is likely to suffer the most?
· The federal budget: Have we targeted the right priorities in the economic stimulus package?
· The global economy: Will a new U.S. administration and measures by several nations to jump-start their economies help to restore consumer and business confidence?
