MEDIA ADVISORY: Economic diversification - Who needs it?

Major new report to unpack facts and myths about economic diversification in Alberta

CALGARY, Nov. 15, 2016 /CNW/ - With the Alberta economy in recession, cries for a more "diversified economy" are being heard across Alberta, and Canada. If we had a more diversified economy, we would be protected from volatility, and would be more prosperous. Or would we?

Thursday, November 17, The School of Public Policy will hold a news conference to release a new report by authors Trevor Tombe and Robert Mansell that paints a surprising and counter-intuitive picture of diversification in Canada. This is a critical report for anyone who believes that diversification is an economic silver-bullet.
