Event Notes

× Toronto-based economist and author Jeff Rubin is a world-leading expert on trade and energy. The former chief strategist at CIBC World Markets also served as a senior fellow at the Centre for International Governance founded by Jim Balsillie. His first book, Why Your World Is About to Get a Whole Lot Smaller was a No. 1 bestseller and won the National Business Book Award. Since then, he has written multiple bestsellers, including The End of Growth, The Carbon Bubble, and The Expendables.

At the BlueShore at CapU, Rubin will discuss his next book, A Map of the New Normal: How Inflation, War, and Sanctions Will Change Your World Forever. Set to publish May 14, the book looks ahead and warns that the inflation that took the world by surprise in 2021 is in fact the front of a perfect storm of war, supply-chain disruption, geopolitical realignment, domestic upheaval, and energy scarcity that will change everything. During the pandemic, the borrowing patterns of the Canadian government inflated a national deficit by a factor of ten in just two years—and the time has come to pay for it. The book reminds us that our mortgage rates and job security, our grocery bills and investments, are all tied to events set in motion by governments, corporations, and black swans around the world.
