While Janet Yellen was telling Congress on Wednesday the Fed hopes to raise interest rates this year, the Bank of Canada was busy announcing a rate cut and downgrading the outlook for its sagging economy.
The two events are not unrelated, and Canada's tale is a forewarning of how a U.S. policy transition is already sending ripples around the world at the same time tumbling commodities prices are biting into growth.
