Jeff Rubin

Economist, Energy Expert, Bestselling Author


Jeff Rubin was one of the first economists to predict triple digit oil prices back in 2005. One of the world’s leading energy experts, Rubin speaks to why the end of cheap oil means the end of easy answers to renewing prosperity — and the end of globalization as we now know it. Rubin was the former Chief Economist at CIBC World Markets (for almost 20 years), and is currently a Senior Fellow at the global think tank, the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI). He is also the bestselling author of Why Your World Is About to Get a Whole Lot Smaller, The End of Growth, and, most recently, The Carbon Bubble. His latest book The Expendables: How the Middle Class Got Screwed by Globalization was published in April 2020. +

For two decades, Rubin was the chief economist and managing director of the investment bank CIBC World Markets. During that time, he received 10 number one citations from Brendan Wood International as the top-ranked economist in Canadian financial markets. In 2007, Jeff was appointed as the firm’s chief equity strategist in addition to his responsibilities as chief economist.

Rubin resigned from CIBC World Markets in 2009 to pursue 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 which became the number-one-selling non-fiction book in Canada. It won the National Business Book Award, and was long-listed for the Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award in the UK.

In addition, Rubin’s many insights into the world energy markets have made the front page of the New York Times and the Wall Street journal, and have been cited in the Economist, Newsweek, and USA Today. --

Jeff Rubin's Speaking Presentations:

Economic Outlook +

Jeff Rubin first caught the attention of financial markets in 1989 with his now-famous call for a 25 per cent decline in Toronto real estate prices. Since then Mr. Rubin's work has often been the subject of national headlines and has been instrumental in raising key issues to the national spotlight. His many calls on the economy and financial markets, particularly with regard to interest rates and the Canadian dollar, earned him no less than 10 number one rankings in either the Brendan Woods annual survey of institutional equity of fixed income investors. The largest fund managers in North America, Europe and the Far East value his expertise, which he now shares with audiences world-wide. --

Oil And The End Of Globalization +

Once the economy recovers, oil prices will skyrocket -and globalization, as we know it, may end. What will our world look like then, and how will we continue to prosper? Today, almost everything we use is made possible, in some way, by abundantly available oil. But oil reserves are disappearing, never to return. Consequently, international trade and long distance driving, among other things, will become luxuries. But from this new reality, Rubin offers a vital account of how we can all benefit if we act now. In this new world, industries, such as steel and agriculture, will be revitalized; carbon tariffs will increase productivity; mass transit will be rethought; and our communities and the human spirit will be strengthened. Looking to the end of oil, and globalization, Rubin is both passionate and practical in outlining opportunities - opportunities that are endless and endlessly hopeful. --

We were very pleased with Jeff's presentation. Thanks again.


The book is a great read, and one that should be required for anyone with a long-term interest in Canadian energy, transportation, manufacturing or agriculture.
