Ten things to know about the 2019-20 Alberta budget

Summary:
I’ve just written a ‘top 10’ overview of the recent Alberta budget. Points raised in the post include the following: -The budget lays out a four-year strategy of spending cuts, letting population growth and inflation do much of the heavy lifting. -After one accounts for both population growth and inflation, annual provincial spending in Alberta by 2022 is projected to be 16.2% lower than it was last year. -Alberta remains Canada’s lowest-taxed province. It also remains the only province without a provincial sales tax. The full blog post can be read here. Nick Falvo is a Calgary-based research consultant. He has a PhD in public policy.
