    Where the Economy and Finance Meet

    Remarks Jean Boivin Okanagan CFA Society and UBC Okanagan (Faculty of Management) Kelowna, British Columbia
    As the title of my speech suggests, I would like to discuss the connections between the real economy – the tangible world of jobs, goods and services – and the more intangible world of finance – of money flows, interest rates and the stock market. They have a long and eventful history.

    Looking Back, Moving Forward: Canada and Global Financial Reform

    Remarks Mark Carney International Center for Monetary and Banking Studies Geneva, Switzerland
    There is an old saying, “Knowledge is gained from experience, and experience is gained from mistakes.” In Canada, we made our mistakes early and often in the 1970s and 1980s. Our fiscal situation deteriorated sharply, inflation surged to double-digit levels, and a few small regional banks collapsed.
