Sizing Up the Economic Horizon in Alberta – September 11, 2014

Original Notes available here:

The Province of Alberta is an economic engine that creates jobs and resulting federal and provincial tax revenues.  But are things as rosy as they seem or is a weakening economy on the horizon?  In this session, three leading economists will weigh in on the topic.  Learn what key measures are monitored and how these indicators compare with events of the past.  Is history about to repeat itself or is Alberta on course to achieve even greater prosperity?  And how does our panel align with the general public sentiments on the economy?  Do optimistic or pessimistic times lie ahead?  How does Alberta’s economic horizon affect Financial Managers responsible for public policy, budgeting and their own family’s finances?
