How Ottawa Spends Your Tax Dollars: National Policy and Economic Development 1982
G. Bruce Doern
James Lorimer & Company, 1982 - Political Science - 258 pages
No matter what the politicians say, it's the way a government decides to spend its money that reveals its true priorities.
The authors discuss the underlying policy priorities-and contradictions-that these expenditure proposals reflect, and present some interesting insights about the direction in which the Trudeau government was then heading.
The 1982 edition of How Ottawa Spends Your Tax Dollars focuses on the federal government's spending plans for economic development programs.
