This week's edition of the Munk Members Podcast digs into three topics: Canada's red hot housing market is projected to surge another 15% in coming year -- Just how big is the bubble Canada's central bank has blown when it comes to home prices and what if anything can be done to prevent a painful repricing of the country's housing stock? -- One of Canada's major pipelines is on the verge of being shutdown by the Governor of Michigan with big consequences for Canada-US relations -- Is there an 11th hour deal to be made? What would be the consequences for Canada to lose access to the pipeline? -- Big thinker Scott Galloway was on the Munk Dialogues this week -- Janice and Rudyard debate his hot take that elite post secondary institutions are bad for society, the economy and flourishing middle class.
