New virus variant versus vaccines - February 2021
This month, Chief Economist Eric Lascelles notes the tug-of-war between two competing forces. On one end, increased vaccine development and immunization efforts across the world could mean brighter days ahead. On the other, more transmissible (and possibly deadlier) variants of the virus in the U.K. and South Africa may halt further progress. Eric also discusses what President Joe Biden’s Blue Wave agenda means for both the U.S. and Canada. Finally, a look at why the Chinese economy is recovering so rapidly.
