I wanted to add to that what is coming up over the weekend:

  • 10 October 2015 at 1700GMT, Minouche Shafik, deputy Governor of the Bank of England is speaking on a panel in Lima
  • 09 October 2015 at 1830GMT, Governor of the Bank of Canada Steven Poloz, along with Rodrigo Vergara. President of the Central Bank of Chile are speaking on a panel at the IMF shin dig in Lima, too.
