Jeff Rubin is an award-winning economist and author. He spent two decades as the chief economist at CIBC World Markets where he received 10 citations as Canada’s top ranked financial market economist. Rubin was one of the first economists in the world to predict triple digit oil prices back in 2005. Considered one of the world’s leading energy experts at the time, his insights have made the front pages of the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, and he has been cited in several high-profile publications including Newsweek and The Economist.
Since resigning from CIBC World Markets in 2008, Rubin has pursued an independent career as an author and public speaker. His first book, Why Your World Is About to Get a Whole Lot Smaller, was an international bestseller, translated into eight languages. It was the number one bestselling non-fiction book in Canada and won the National Business Book Award. It was also longlisted for the Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award in the United Kingdom.
Rubin has gone on to write three more bestselling books: The End of Growth, The Carbon Bubble, and The Expendables. In May 2024, he’ll release his fifth book, The New Normal: How Inflation, Sanctions and War will Change Your Lives Forever. In addition, Rubin wrote a widely read column in the Globe and Mail for several years called “Ahead of the Curve”. His recent work has focused on the demise of globalization and the fracturing of the world economy into competing geopolitical blocks.
