Five Considerations for a Sustainable Recovery

September 16, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm


The economic crisis wrought by COVID-19 requires a globally coordinated response that transforms how we think of the economy.

In joint partnership with the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum (OMFIF), the Balsillie School of International Affairs is thrilled to co-host a special panel launching a highly anticipated paper by William White, formerly of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), examining five considerations for a sustainable recovery and future economic transformation. He will be joined by Robert Holzmann, governor of the Oesterreichische Nationalbank (Austria), alongside Pierre Siklos, professor at the Balsillie School of International Affairs and Danae Kyriakopoulou, chief economist and director of research at OMFIF

The panel will discuss and debate questions of: What ‘policy preconditions’ threaten sustainable growth? What future shocks threaten sustainable growth? What would a sustainable economy look like? What is needed to get from here to there? How can we make the right political choice between ‘unpalatable’ and ‘disastrous’?
