Economists Tell Flaherty Canada Recession Is Out of the Question

October 25, 2011

Oct. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said the private-sector economists he met with today project continued modest economic growth, and told him a recession is out of the question for now.

Speaking to reporters after the meeting in Ottawa, Flaherty said it would take a “dramatic shock” in Europe, such as a banking crisis with a credit crisis that followed, to push Canada back into recession.
