Every other week, we release 5 Minutes for Business, a publication written by Hendrik Brakel, our Senior Director of Economic, Financial and Tax Policy. In these publications, Hendrik briefly describes current issues that affect the Canadian economy and provides insight on what it will mean for Canadians today and the future. In this week’s edition, he looks at the importance of the economy in our current electoral campaign.

Normally at election time, nobody cares much about fiscal policy, or whether GDP is up or down. But this is not a normal election. Instead, it has been wracked throughout by a series of economic shocks that have sent political strategists scrambling. Who would have believed that economics could be so exciting? From deficits that turn into surplusses to the TPP, the economy has been front and centre in the past 10 weeks. Will it affect the choice of Canadians next week?

Read 5 Minutes for Business to find out.
