ESNA Policy Pints & FMI



AsFor those of my readers who enjoy interesting policy discussions among economists and other assorted professionals along with some beer go to ESNA Policy Pints to register for next Thursday, 9 November’s Policy Pints.

The speaker is Professor Joe Marchand who will be speaking on his research on “Impacts of Alberta’s minimum wage increase”. The event takes place starting at 6 p.m. at the Rocky Mountain Icehouse, 10516 Jasper Avenue.


Also on November 15, 2017 ESNA  presents Craig Schram of Darkhorse Analytics and Carmen Velasquez of the Alberta School of Business.  Go to  ESNA registration to register.

Global crude markets are showing signs of re-balancing with slightly stronger price levels and declining inventories.  Despite this, Canadian markets still face a variety of uncertainties, among them, access to new markets.  What does the future hold for new transportation options? What impact could these transportation options have on Canadian crude prices and flows?  A partnership between Darkhorse Analytics and the Alberta School of Business is endeavouring to answer these questions via the development of a North American crude.

Also visit FMI registration for an event on “Disruptive Writing – How to Survive & Thrive” Change taking place on November 22 at the Sutton Hotel.
