Policy Anchors for Turbulent Times


Since the financial crisis, there has been considerable reliance on monetary policy to stabilize and stimulate the economy.  With slow growth and policy rates near zero, there has been an increasing recognition of the limited efficacy of monetary policy “pushing on a string” to support economic growth in the next recession.  Many senior academics and experienced policy advisors are calling for a renewed emphasis on fiscal policy. However, this requires monetary and fiscal integration and anchors to support economic growth and keep inflation low and stable.  TABE/CABE is very fortunate that Dr. David Dodge, arguably the most experienced practitioner of both monetary and fiscal policy in recent history, has agreed to provide us his perspective on the policy issues. 


About our speaker

During a distinguished career in the federal public service, Dr. David Dodge had a number of increasingly senior positions at the Department of Finance, including that of G-7 Deputy, and was Deputy Minister of Finance from 1992 to 1997. In that role, he served as a member of the Bank of Canada's Board of Directors.

In 1998 he was appointed Deputy Minister of Health, a position he held until his appointment as Governor of the Bank of Canada.

Mr. Dodge, appointed Governor of the Bank of Canada, effective 1 February 2001 for a term of seven years, retired on 31 January 2008.

A native of Toronto, Mr. Dodge received a bachelor's degree (honours) from Queen's University, and a PhD in economics from Princeton.
