Alors que 2023 touche à sa fin, l'économie mondiale, canadienne et québécoise font face à des défis sans précédent : des enjeux géopolitiques plus sérieux, un risque de recession incertain, une inflation difficilement gérable, une volatilité des marchés, l’endettement des ménages, etc.  Deux économistes de renom, Sebastien McMahon, Stratège en chef, économiste sénior et VP, Répartition d’actifs et Gestionnaire de portefeuille à iAGMA et Jimmy Jean, économiste en chef et stratège à Desjardins, exposeront leur point de vue et répondront à nos questions sur les risques auxquels fait face l'économie canadienne et québécoise.
