RBC GAM MacroMemo Sept. 14-27, 2021

This week’s #MacroMemo provides a high level summary of the latest virus trends before venturing into a wide range of economic and policy matters. These include a Canadian election preview, negative economic surprises, swooning Asian manufacturers and a U.S. labour market update.
