Munk Debate – The Future of the North American Economy

On November 14th, 2011, the eighth semi-annual Munk Debate tabled the motion: “Be it resolved, North America faces a Japan-style era of high unemployment and slow growth.”

Arguing for the resolution were Nobel Laureate and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, and David Rosenberg, chief economist and strategist at Gluskin Sheff + Associates Ltd.

Opposing them were former U.S. Treasury Secretary and Harvard University president Lawrence Summers, and Iam Bremmer, founder and president of Eurasia Group.
