World Economy Trends and Their Implications for the City of Calgary. Tatyana Teplova. CPRN Research Report F|64. December 2006. 66 pp.

A new report from Canadian Policy Research Networks calls for boomtown Calgary to invest some of the riches it is earning today – to ensure continued economic prosperity in the future. CPRN's report was written for the City of Calgary and ImagineCALGARY as a contribution towards creating a strategic vision for the city. The recommendations include diversifying the economy to avoid being buffeted by the volatility of the world energy market and investing in a "livable city" to address the environmental and social problems resulting from the current unfettered sprawl.
