Todd Hirsch calls himself "Alberta's economist." He's at the province's government owned bank (a vestige of the old Social Credit era.)
It's the time of year when everyone is making forecasts and predictions, so what did Hirsch tell Albertans to expect?
Well, he made a joke about it:
"Calgary economic forecast calls for heavy humility in 2016"
Meaning what? That the NDP will finally cut out the hubris and stop trying to destroy everything that made Alberta great?
Of course not! He says citizens in the private sector needs to accept a smaller life. Be less confident, and live with "lower expectations."
Naturally, public sector one-percenter Hirsch isn't volunteering to take a salary cut. Neither are thousands of other government workers.
It makes you wonder what the NDP has in mind for the new year...
