Glen Hodgson

International Economist and Author
Show/Hide Bio

International economist and author Glen Hodgson has over 35 years of experience in global and Canadian macro-economics, international trade and finance, fiscal and tax policy, and other “big picture” topics. He is the first-ever Senior Fellow at The Conference Board of Canada, after spending twelve years as the Board’s Senior Vice-President and Chief Economist.

Glen’s career has spanned the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Washington D.C., the federal Department of Finance, Export Development Canada (EDC), as well as the Conference Board of Canada. He has travelled the world and Canada as a financial negotiator, economic thinker, and advisor to governments and international organizations. He has published two books, one on the 2008 global financial crisis, and the other on the business economics of pro sports. He has written over 350 reports, briefings and articles, shares regular commentary in the Globe and Mail, and delivers many speeches and presentations each year to clients.

Glen has led organizations and served on boards. He is also a member of Canada’s Ecofiscal Commission, which undertakes research and provides advice on how price signals can be used to modify behavior and economic performance for the better.

Glen provides insights on the energy transition that is now quietly underway, and how this transition could shape an economy with lower GHG emissions, but without impairing the Canadian economy’s growth capacity. These insights come from his research, and his role as the chair of a new research centre at the Conference Board on the low-carbon growth economy.
