In this talk, ATB Financial's chief economist Todd Hirsch explores the events that impact our economy--both globally and closer to home.

As we move into the end of 2016, the global economy remains tentative. The US continues to pick up steam, but troubles are brewing both in Europe and Asia.

Canada’s economy is also struggling to gain traction and oil prices continue to bounce around at levels unsupportive of new investment in Alberta. All of this adds up to a still challenged economy. As the province struggles through its second year of recession, the question on many people’s minds is how long will this last? Have we seen the worst of it, and if so when can we expect recovery?
