About this Event

Join us for a virtual panel discussion.

Thursday, March 26, 2020 – 2:00 PM EST

The last several weeks have provoked a range of headline-grabbing developments across Canada and the globe. COVID-19 was recently declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) and with this announcement, it will inevitably continue to threaten supply chains worldwide. In the backdrop of COVID-19, other recent events like Brexit, blockades, the recent election in Canada, and upcoming elections abroad have and will also continue to play significant roles in reshaping our economy in the near term.

Chris HerronMaryna Ivus, and Akshay Kotak have spent the last couple of weeks doing a deep dive into what this all means and how well-crafted policy can be deployed to ease this anxious time for all. They will take the audience through a deep dive on their recently released article and how events are rapidly shifting across the global economy since its release.
