Economics: Bloomberg Summit to Examine Economic Growth in Canada

As the Canadian economy prepares to face external headwinds in 2012 — including a sovereign debt crisis in Europe, an election year deadlock in the United States, and slowing growth in China — Bloomberg will convene policy makers, chief executive officers and influential leaders in banking and finance for the Bloomberg Canada Economic Summit on May 8, 2012.

Speakers at the Summit will gather at The Carlu in Toronto to discuss Canada’s growth in an age of global deleveraging. While Canada benefits from its rich natural resources and strong banks, a record household debt level and potential housing bubble threaten to slow its growth. The Summit will debate how Canada can cut spending, add jobs and protect itself against any fallout from the debt crisis in Europe and other external threats.

The Summit will also include one-on-one interviews with power players such as Dalton McGuinty, Premier, Province of Ontario, Paul Martin, Former Prime Minister, Canada, Gordon Nixon, President and CEO, Royal Bank of Canada and U.S. activist investor William A. Ackman, CEO and Portfolio Manager, Pershing Square Capital Management L.P.

Education: Overseas Students Eye Canadian M.B.A.s, Job Opportunities

Nobody says job-hunting is easy, especially these days, but it may be toughest for international job applicants seeking positions in the U.S.

With local talent plentiful, many U.S. firms are looking to bypass the hassle (visas; paperwork) of bringing in candidates from overseas.
