Down to Business podcast: Canada can’t escape a recession if the global economy heads south

Welcome to Down to Business, a weekly podcast from the Financial Post.

It’s getting hard to ignore signs of the R word.

On Episode 17 of Down to Business, Manulife Investment Management’s Frances Donald, chief economist and head of macroeconomic strategy, speaks with Emily Jackson about whether the world is talking itself into a recession and what Canadian policy makers should focus on moving forward.
