7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

America has wealth, innovation, and access to the best of everything. So why is our health-care system so broken? Why does it cost more than ever and deliver less?

And equally important, why is the Canadian system, widely touted as a sparkling example of compassion and universal access, actually a disastrous model to be avoided?

Economics and the environment : a reconciliation( Book )

7 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the back cover: Economics and the environment - implausible bedfellows at the best of times. However, the world runs of well-understood principles, and environmentalists' goals must translate into workable economic solutions. Using the building blocks of free market prices, private property rights, and a justice system that protects such rights, the contributors to this unique volume demonstrate how the economics of the market can be used to attain ecologically sound environmental goals efficiently and effectively. Free enterprise is not the cause of environmental problems, but it can be part of the solution. There is no intrinsic conflict between the market and the environment. "Economics and the Environment" explores the idea that a reconciliation between economics and ecology is not only possible but desireable as well

A new look at Canadian Indian policy : respect the collective, promote the individual by Gordon Gibson( )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I believe that there is a growing concern about this. If so, there is an opening to a better future. But in spite of good will, pernicious and counter-productive incentives remain to burden an entire people, not just as trailing legacies of the past but as current active goals of governments and other entities in the system. The fatal defects in outcomes are not redeemed by the fact that the intentions are in general of the best. Some commentators will say - with reason - that this paper challenges some of the most basic assumptions of established Indian policy. This challenge would not be necessary if established Indian policy was working well, for Indians or anyone else."--from Fraser Institute website
Unions and right-to-work laws : the global evidence of their impact on employment( Book )

5 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It also provides guidelines for enacting labour market reform in Canada.

Unless some of the rigidities in Canada's labour market are eliminated, high levels of unemployment will become a permanent feature of the Canadian economic landscape
