The Bank’s Press Release notes:

The first round of this year’s competition took place November 15–16, 2021, with presentations delivered by video conference. More than 100 students from 22 Canadian universities participated.”

Working in teams, students provided analysis and forecasts on developments in the economy. They then presented a monetary policy recommendation to keep inflation low and stable, in line with the Bank’s inflation target of 2 per cent. The judges evaluated teams on the substance of their analysis, the quality of their presentation and evidence of strong teamwork.”

Congratulations to Professor Raul Razo-Garcia and the B.ECON team!
