Perspectives is a podcast series taking a big-picture look at important issues on Canadians' minds, with leading experts to help us navigate those issues. The Scotiabank newsroom team started Pandenomics to examine the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic from many different points of view. Now, the podcast is widening its lens to navigate broader topics — financial and otherwise. Simply called Perspectives, our new podcast will no longer focus exclusively on the pandemic and its consequences. Instead, we will delve into a wide range of issues, from the housing market to the environment, from the stock market to the role of a bank in the community — and more.
