Budget 2024

April 16 budget must prioritize growth 

Robert Asselin believes that fiscal policy is putting pressure on pricing prices and that monetary policy will be necessary for cooling inflation. He shares his perspective in an article by Bloomberg that discusses both Chrystia Freeland’s recent speech to the Empire Club of Canada and Robert Asselin’s joint Scotiabank thought leadership with Jean-Francois Perrault on how to retain and attract older workers.

“This is all on the central bank now: They will be the ones in charge of cleaning up this inflation mess.”

Robert Asselin, Senior Vice President, Business Council of Canada
