Economist | Trade and Energy Expert | Author
JEFF RUBIN is a Canadian economist and bestselling author. A world-leading expert on trade and energy, and former chief economist and chief strategist at CIBC World Markets, he recently 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 an international bestseller, and was favourably reviewed in both TIME and Newsweek. It was the number-one-selling non-fiction book in Canada and won the National Business Book Award, and was longlisted for the Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award. Since then, he has written multiple bestsellers, including The End of Growth, The Carbon Bubble, and The Expendables.
In May 2024 Jeff’s most recent book A Map of the New Normal: How Inflation, War, and Sanctions Will Change Your World Forever will be release. Jeff 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.
