    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.

    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.

    Dealing with Uncertainty in the Conduct of Monetary Policy

    Remarks Sheryl Kennedy Montréal CFA Society Montréal, Quebec
    The main goal of monetary policy is to help the country achieve strong, sustainable economic performance, and, in doing so, to contribute to rising living standards for Canadians. Experience has shown that the best way for a central bank to meet this goal, given the instruments at its disposal, is by keeping inflation low and stable. Low and stable inflation increases confidence in the future value of money, and allows for clear price signals.
