Can we keep staving off a recession? The Roundtable on the state of the economy and the impact of Google’s $100-million deal

Podcast & Video

This week’s Hub Roundtable discusses recent Canadian economic data, including a decline in third-quarter GDP, a rise in the national unemployment rate, and historically low consumer confidence, and what these bearish numbers tell us about the country’s political economy. They also discuss Google’s $100 million deal with the Trudeau government for the news media and what it may mean for the future of journalism.

The Roundtable features Hub executive director Rudyard Griffiths and Hub editor-at-large, Sean Speer. The Roundtable is produced and edited by The Hub’s content editor, Amal Attar-Guzman.
