    Government Borrowers Forum

    Remarks David Dodge Government Borrowers Forum Montréal, Quebec
    We are all interested in seeing the continued development of international capital markets, as part of the advancement of a market-based, liberalized trade and financial regime. Let's remember that an open, market-based economic system is increasingly vital, in a world where change is driven by the development of new technologies and modes of competition; and where adjustments are occurring all the time.

    A Sound Pension System – Handling Risk Appropriately

    Remarks David Dodge Conference Board of Canada 2007 Pensions Summit Toronto, Ontario
    It goes without saying that a sound system of private pensions is important from the perspective of pensioners who rely on a given plan for their retirement income. For firms, a pension plan can help to attract and retain staff, and so the business community also counts on a sound pension system.

    The Importance of Appropriate Exchange Rate Regimes

    Remarks David Dodge ACI - The Financial Markets Association Montréal, Quebec
    Why do I think that such an order is so important? Well, in part it's because history has helped to demonstrate its virtues. But it's also extremely important to bear in mind the context, that is, the world in which we live today. This is a world in which adjustment is perpetual, where change is driven by the development of new technologies, where sectors and nations continually attempt to secure some new advantage. And in this world, price signals from markets help us to understand what adjustments are needed.

After considering the full range of indicators, the Bank now judges that the Canadian economy was operating just above its production capacity in the first quarter of this year.
