Chip in to keep stories like these coming.

Was there any concrete economic reason for Stephen Harper to call Stephen Poloz this week, as global stock markets continued their gyrations? And then to have his office subsequently issue a cryptic and rather foreboding statement about the conversation?

Of course, prime ministers and central bank governors talk to each other every now and then -- but these conversations, for obvious reasons, are rarely publicized. And since we are in an election campaign, the meeting was all the more odd.
