Canadian Manufacturing, Volume II: A Study in Productivity and Technological Change: Industry Studies, 1946-1977
What were the causes of the decline in productivity in Canadian manufacturing in the post-World War Two period, and how could it best be addressed?
Professor Zohar's analysis examines the productivity of labour and capital in nineteen industry groups--from food and beverage products to chemical industries--that constituted the contemporary Canadian manufacturing sector. He quantifies various factors contributing to productivity and compares each industry group against an average benchmark for the entire sector. The results inform his discussion of industrial strategy.
Canadian Manufacturing is a precise, analytical examination of important aspects of the Canadian economy at a crucial period in national development.
