Rebuilding from within: remedies for Canada's ailing economy
J. Lorimer in association with the Canadian Institute for Economic Policy, Mar 1, 1984 - Business & Economics - 114 pages
In this study, written in 1984, the author discusses problems and weaknesses in Canada's economy and offers solutions for improving in the future.
Skeptical of the benefits of free trade proposals and deeply critical of the effects of monetarism, the author proposes an alternative vision of the nation's development. Rotstein outlines the sorts of industrial policies that Canada must have in a "balanced portfolio" to better exploit the domestic market and survive in a changing global marketplace.
"Rebuilding from Within" is a clear-headed response to the economic upheavals experienced in Canada in the early 1980s.
