Leadership Perspectives: Economics Matters, Episode 6
In this episode of economics matters, we look behind the curtain at the world of economic forecasting. My colleague Ted Mallett, The Conference Board of Canada’s Director of Economic Forecasting gives us his take on how he and his team approach business of economic forecasting.
We discuss the mechanics of economic forecasting, the models, the data sources as well as the ways in which Ted and his team incorporate observations on human behaviours to guide the outputs of the models and derive meaningful insights on the direction of the economy.
