Play • 47 min

ATB Financial’s Chief Economist,Todd Hirsch, is joined by Rob Roach, deputy chief economist at ATB Financial. 

In a moderated discussion, Rob and Todd start the episode by answering listener questions about education, the economy, unemployment and COVID-19. 

Next, they continue the conversation on The Future Of Trade. 

Our relationship and interactions with trade have transformed dramatically over the years. Beyond goods that Canada imports and exports, the trade of intellectual property and services through virtual and online platforms is on the rise. How will technology and our ability to connect with others across the globe impact trade as we know it? 

From free-trade to protectionism, there are ample opportunities for Canada, and each of us, to explore.
