    Recent Economic Developments and the Conduct of Monetary Policy

    Remarks David Dodge Metropolitan Halifax Chamber of Commerce Halifax, Nova Scotia
    It's been a year since I last spoke in Halifax, and a lot has changed since then. We've witnessed some extraordinary events, both in Canada and around the world. On the whole, Canada's economy has withstood the turmoil quite well. The impact of some more recent events is not yet clear.

    I want to talk to you about the Canadian economy - how it has evolved over the past few months and what are the prospects ahead.

    It All Starts with the Data

    Remarks David Dodge Conference of European Statisticians Geneva, Switzerland
    Our statistical needs are fundamentally shaped by what we are expected to do under our mandate. The primary goal of most central banks today is to conduct monetary policy so as to achieve and maintain price stability. Low, stable, and predictable inflation is the means to our ultimate objective of solid economic performance over time.
