The referendum papers : essays on secession and national unity by David R Cameron( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The close outcome of the October 1995 referendum on Quebec separation was a jarring wake-up call for English Canada, forcing Canadians outside Quebec to confront the unthinkable. This collection of papers by leading academics and analysts offers the most thorough examination yet of the main issues arising out of the October referendum. It considers not only what might be done to help the country survive, but what should be done if it doesn't."--Jacket

Outward bound : Canadian direct investment in the United States by Alan M Rugman( Book )

6 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Foreword: Most Canadians and a growing number of Americans are aware that our two countries are each other's largest trading partner...Investment issues have long been a source of tensions in the bilateral relationship because of Canadian concerns about the extent of U.S. ownership of key Canadian industries. Although the United States is now a debtor country, U.S. corporations continue to have substantial operations thoroughout the world, with those in Canada accounting for more than one-quarter of all their holdings in the industrial countries. Over the past decade, however, there has been a remarkable shift in bilateral investment flows. Investment by Canadian firms in U.S. operations has accelerated and the stake of Canadian multinational enterprises in the U.S. economy has risen rapidly relative to the value of U.S. holdings in Canada. This study...documents the changes that have taken place

Unfinished tasks : the new international trade theory and the post-Uruguay Round challenges by F. M Scherer( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The next few years will be a critical period for international trade despite the major achievements in 1993. The Uruguay Round agreement, between 117 General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) signatory nations, was reached in December 1993. It contains many new provisions that move toward harmonizing world trading and investment relationships. Yet many of the Uruguay Round's initial goals were not accomplished. This study seeks to illuminate the still unresolved issues of world trade. Its point of departure is the observation that economic theories concerning international trade have outrun world trading policies. Topics covered are: setting the stage; evolution and revolution in economic theory; features of the new international trade theory; the role of strategy; trade-enhancing national strategies; and, policy implications and future prospects

U.S.-Canadian agricultural trade challenges : developing common approaches by Kristen Allen( Book )

6 editions published between 1988 and 2016 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Papers given at a Canada-US symposium on the liberalization of agricultural trade, both via the Free Trade Agreement between Canada and the US and the Uruguay Round of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). As the specific terms of the Trade Agreement were not available, papers raised some of the many issues which would be addressed in negotiations. Coverage includes: forces that have shaped national agricultural policies; the theoretical gains from trade and some of the gains and losses that might be realized; measuring the trade effects of various agricultural policies; immediate and longer-term concerns of those agricultural groups most likely to be affected by changes; formal and informal non-tariff barriers to trade and alternative ways for resolving such disputes; and linkages between the Canada-US bilateral negotiations and the multilateral negotiations in the GATT

The illusion of difference : realities of ethnicity in Canada and the United States by Jeffrey G Reitz( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In distinguishing themselves from Americans, Canadians have long used the language of metaphor to describe their society as a mosaic and the United States as a melting pot. To undertake this difficult challenge of comparing the cultural myths and realities of Canada and the United States, the C.D. Howe Institute drew on the expertise of two of Canada's most esteemed sociologists, Jeffrey G. Reitz and Raymond Breton, both of whom are professors of sociology at the University of Toronto. Their study, the result of an exhaustive review of the available public opinion data, helps bring a picture of Canadians and Americans into clearer focus. Topics covered are: Canadian beliefs about the mosaic and the melting pot; attitudes toward the retention of minority cultures; the extent of cultural retention; and prejudice and discrimination
Brains on the move : essays on human capital mobility in a globalizing world and implications for the Canadian economy by Stephen T Easton( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains essays that analyze the importance of labour mobility to the economy and draw important policy conclusions. The first summarizes data on Canadian emigration to the United States and the characteristics of Canadian residents of the US. The next two essays look at emigration of scientists and economists along with the factors related to whether or not they emigrate. The fourth essay examines the decision by Canadians to obtain at least part of their education in the US. The fifth essay takes up the question of the welfare significance of the international flows of skilled labour and develops a theory relating the Canada-US income gap to a knowledge gap between the two countries. The sixth essay develops an alternative approach to the same issue, with a focus on entrepreneurs. It points out the links between the available supply of talent for entrepreneurship and the productivity of new firms that entrepreneurs create and highlights the important issue of different degrees of mobility among different types of people. The seventh essay studies the effect of cultural clustering on immigration decisions using a sample of Organisation for Economic Cooperation & Development countries. The last essay discusses whether the North American Free Trade Agreement could be extended to cover free trade in labour
Two percent target : the context, theory, and practice of Canadian monetary policy since 1991 by David E. W Laidler( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the transition from the decades of high & volatile inflation of the 1970s & 1980s to the stable monetary environment of the 1990s and documents the role of monetary policy in bringing about this transition. Part I reviews Canadian monetary policy and its background since the early 1990s, and ends with an overview of the evolution of the debates surrounding monetary policy and inflation. Part II begins with discussion of central banking in general and its development in Canada in particular. It then looks at the economics of monetary policy: what it can & cannot do and how changes in the stance of the central bank work their way through the economy. It ends by discussing how monetary & fiscal policy interact and the nature of democratic control over the central bank. Part III examines the experience of the past decade related to the conduct of monetary policy in the context of international & domestic economic developments. It also details the framework for monetary policy in Canada as well as the major changes in the Bank of Canada's operating procedures since the early 1990s. The final part draws some conclusions from recent Canadian experience with low inflation, assesses alternatives to current monetary policy arrangements, and speculates about directions for such arrangements in the years ahead
