The Real Economy, Canada: Volume 1
Toward a more sustainable pace
THE REAL ECONOMY |
After two years of steady economic growth, Canada can anticipate a modestly slower rate of growth as household consumption falls to a more sustainable pace. In the inaugural issue of The Real Economy, Canada, RSM Chief Economist Joseph Brusuelas closely examines the primary drivers of growth for 2019, which include modest consumer spending, government expenditures, and an economy bolstered by an increase in business investment.
Also in this issue: introducing the RSM Canada Financial Conditions Index (FCI), an in-depth quarterly assessment of the Canadian financial markets that provides RSM’s clients and Canadians with a thorough background on Canadian economic financial conditions. The FCI points to a slowdown in economic growth amid rising interest rates.
The launch of The Real Economy, Canada, is part of RSM Canada’s commitment to keeping clients informed by creating a clear picture of the notable economic trends and issues facing the Canadian middle market.
