The brutal business that economic forecasting has become. 9/11, then corporate malfeasance, then war in Iraq, then SARS, then Korea - a very uncertain outlook. A lesson. The challenge Canadian companies face in selling Canada to such a volatile world. The need to sell to the world. Globalization. International trade and cross-border investment.
