The End of Growth
This event is co-presented by CBC Manitoba and hosted by
Larry Updike, host of CBC Radio One 89.3 FM/990 AM’s Up to Speed.
Jeff Rubin is the author of Why Your World Is About to Get a Whole Lot Smaller, a number one national bestseller and the Canadian Business Book of the Year.
In this follow-up, Rubin ponders what it will be like to live in a world where growth is over. Rubin believes that both politicians and economists are missing the fact that the real engine of economic growth has always been cheap, abundant resources.
The end of cheap oil signals the end of easy answers to renewing prosperity.
With China and India sucking up the lion’s share of the world’s ever more limited resources, the rest of us will have to make do with less.
But is this all bad? Can less actually be more?
Either way, it’s the new reality.
Rubin was the Chief Economist and Chief Strategist at CIBC World Markets, where he worked for over twenty years. He was one of the first economists to predict soaring oil prices back in 2000 and is one of the world’s most sought-after energy experts.
He blogs weekly for The Globe and Mail and lives in Toronto.
