Since the recession and credit crunch in 2009, the world economy has been stumbling ahead with halting steps. The U.S. recovery continues to be held back by a weak housing sector, less than stellar employment growth and a political impasse over what to do about Washington’s deficit.
Europe is still entangled in debt problems that have expanded beyond Greece to include Spanish banks. Chinese industrial output is suffering on account of reduced activity levels in its chief export markets. Beijing is lowering interest rates. Monetary authorities everywhere are looking at what they can do to provide more stimulation for forward momentum. The outlooks for interest rates, currency values, inflation, incomes and investment plans remain in the balance.
Against this backdrop, Canada’s housing sector has shown remarkable but possibly unsustainable buoyancy, especially in condominium construction. Commercial and industrial construction is recovering in typical cyclical fashion, although not as quickly as in previous turnarounds. Institutional work is being inhibited by government austerity measures. Continuing strength in engineering construction depends largely on the outlook for commodity prices.
CanaData has assembled the nation’s leading experts to offer their opinions on the outlook in their fields of expertise. In a present fraught with worrying uncertainty, guidance by means of the clearest and most comprehensive information is the route to gaining greater confidence.
