Alberta's economy has been riding high for more than four years. Now, in 2015, it's set to slow down. With oil prices low and volatile, there's a lot of worry in our province and across the country. But is the concern for Alberta's economy overdone? What's likely to happen in the global, national and provincial economies in 2015? Are interest rates on the rise, or the Canadian dollar on the decline? Who should worry... and who shouldn't?

Todd Hirsch is ATB Financial's Chief Economist. He holds a BA Honours in Economics from the University of Alberta and an MA in Economics from the University of Calgary. For over 20 years he's worked as an economist at 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.

Todd provides economic commentary for several Canadian media outlets and is a regular columnist for the Globe and Mail. He currently serves on the Alberta Economic Development Authority, the University of Calgary Board of Governors and is the chair of the Premier's Council on Culture. The federal government honoured Todd for his contribution to the community with the Diamond Jubilee Medal. 

He also writes an economic update that is sent to thousands of subscribers around the world every day. It's called The Owl and you can subscribe at
