Economist and Trends Expert
The world we live in is morphing into a new one as we speak—that’s a scary prospect for many, but after a presentation by Linda Nazareth, you will feel like you have a handle on the future. The Senior Fellow for Economics and Population Change at policy think-tank The Macdonald-Laurier Institute, Linda is an expert in demographic and economic trends. Her talks focus on what will happen—and what you need to think about to be on the right side of change.
Linda’s most recent book, Economorphics: The Trends Turning Today into Tomorrow, examines the demographic and economic changes hitting the global economy, and the way that they will impact consumers, workers, and organizations, with a view to keeping all players ahead of the curve.
Through her career, Linda has used her combination of skills as an economist and communicator to work and consult in a wide variety of industries. Currently, she is a consultant to organizations in the public and private sector, and for over ten years she was the on-air economist for Business News Network. She has also been a senior economist at CIBC, and an economist with the Canadian federal government.
A blogger for her own site and many others, including The Globe and Mail, Linda has also been quoted as an expert everywhere from the Wall Street Journal to Wired magazine.
