University of Alberta Press, Jan 1, 2001 - Business & Economics - 233 pages
A rare social-science experiment was recently undertaken in British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. Within the space of one year, all three provincial governments embarked on programs to eliminate their deficits. This volume considers the political culture of each province, examines the strategies chosen, and measures the comparative outcomes of the experiment.
