Glen Hodgson,

Despite having weathered the recent recession better than most other developed nations, Canada faces a tough fiscal future.  As governments moved swiftly to stimulate the economy through higher spending so they now feel pressure to act to eliminate structural deficits and begin reducing debt.  Additionally, as the recent election in Toronto demonstrated, politicians who promise smaller government and tax cuts appeal to a sizeable portion of voters.  And while no one anticipates dramatic cuts of the kind now underway in the UK, tough questions will be asked about the priorities governments set and how they fund them.
 
In this brief session , Conference Board of Canada Chief Economist Glen Hodgson will discuss Canada's economic outlook and its implications for public spending and for leaders in the public sector.
