Have We Reached the Bottom Yet?December 14, 2016 7:30 AM to 9:00 AMAlberta Teachers Association, Edmonton, Alberta Area of Interest: Pensions, Benefits, Investments, Networking Format: In PersonIn 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? For over 20 years, Todd has worked as an economist at numerous organizations including the Canadian Pacific Railway, the Canada West Foundation and the Bank of Canada. For almost a decade, Todd taught economics at the University of Calgary. He released his first book, The Boiling Frog Dilemma: Saving Canada from Economic Decline in 2012 and his second, Halfway Home in 2016.
