Global Economy
  • Éditeur québécois

The International Economic Forum of the Americas / Conference of Montreal was first held 20 years ago with the beginning of a new economic globalization movement, which gained momentum with, among other things, the creation of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the integration of economic and financial management of the European Union, the establishment of free trade between the United States, Mexico and Canada and the advent of the involvement of the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China). In light of these new developments, a desire emerged to create an independent international forum in Montreal, to identify and understand the impact of all these changes on the global economic system. The Global Economy – The foundation for the Next Era of Growth is a multi-authored examination of the current business state of affairs, compiled to mark the 20th anniversary of the Montreal Conference. It will provide readers with access to valuable information, to better understand the realities of this period of adjustment for the global economy, giving everyone access to a new era of prosperity.
