There’s certainly a lot going on in the world economy, with ongoing discussions around the Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement (CETA), mandatory Country of Origin Labelling (mCOOL), and Russia’s response to recently imposed sanctions. But what does the future look like for global growth, in general?

For next year, it looks good. At least according to Glen Hodgson, senior vice president and chief economist of the Conference Board of Canada. Hodgson spoke at this year’s International Livestock Congress (ILC) focusing his attention on the E.U. and U.S. and emerging markets.

Keep up to date on the markets with RealAgriculture’s weekly update.

In this video, filmed at ILC, Hodgson, talks about this year’s macroeconomic climate and what it could mean for 2015. Hodgson also describes what the Conference Board of Canada is all about, and introduces Power Play: The Business Economics of Pro Sports, a novel that analyzes how some professional sports franchises succeed, while others fail. Besides likening the franchises to economic systems, the book also includes a forecast for the state of pro sports in 2035. Have a listen.
