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 “low-growth” economic trap that spans across the globe. Rich countries just aren’t growing fast enough. From jobs and wages to pension returns and tax revenue, we expect 3% annual growth, and we’re not getting it.

So what’s the problem and what should we do about it?  Should we concentrate on reducing deficits, or focus on stimulus spending? Is the priority productivity, infrastructure or investment? How important are Pokémon in the equation? 

Read 5 Minutes for Business to find out.
