Profits and politics : Beaverbrook and the Gilded Age of Canadian finance by Gregory P Marchildon( )

16 editions published between 1996 and 2019 in English and held by 964 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marchildon walks us through the machinations, uncertainties, and bravado that went into Aitken's world of promoting, financing, and stockbroking. He describes in riveting detail the playing out of the great mergers in Canadian politics and business life - most notably that of Stelco and Canada Cement. We see the inner workings of finance capitalism, coloured by many remarkable personalities of the day, and we learn how Aitken's innovative tactics made him a very rich man while still in his twenties. This is a deeply textured account of the dynamics of the securities market in the formative years at the beginning of the twentieth century

Nunavut : a health system profile by Gregory P Marchildon( )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Little more than a decade old, Nunavut has a population that consists of thirty-thousand residents living in twenty-five widely dispersed communities. No roads connect the territory's isolated populations and nearly all supplies and equipment are transported by air. Consequently, health service delivery in Nunavut is the costliest in Canada and its operation encounters challenges more extreme than those faced elsewhere. Marchildon and Torgerson consider the historical and demographic context of healthcare in Nunavut, as well as the finances, governance, infrastructure, workforce, and program provisions that define the system. Due to a high incidence of suicide and the psychological upheaval associated with rapid societal change, the authors call particular attention to the treatment of mental health and addictions.--Publisher's description
Women's history by Gregory P Marchildon( )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This fifth volume of the History of the Prairie West Series contains a broad range of articles spanning the 1870s to the present and examines the mostly unexplored place of women in the history of Canada's Prairie Provinces. From "Spinsters Need Not Apply" to "Negotiating Sex and Gender in the Ukrainian Bloc Settlement," women's roles in politics, law, agriculture, labour, and journalism are explored to reveal a complex portrait of women struggling to find safety, have careers, raise children, and be themselves in an often harsh environment."--
Fiscal federalism and equalization policy in Canada : political and economic dimensions by André Lecours( )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fiscal Federalism and Equalization Policy in Canada is a concise book that aims to increase public understanding of equalization and fiscal federalism by providing a comparative and multidisciplinary perspective on the history, politics, and economics of equalization policy in Canada. The authors provide a brief history of the equalization program, a discussion of key economic debates concerning the role of that program and its effects, an analysis of the politics of equalization as witnessed over the last decade, and an exploration of the relationship between equalization and other components of fiscal federalism, particularly the Canada Health Transfer and the Canada Social Transfer. The result is an analysis of equalization that draws from the best scholarship available in the fields of economics, economic history, political science, public policy, and political sociology."--
Bending the cost curve in health care( )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through Canadian and international perspectives, Bending the Cost Curve in Health Care explores the management of growing health costs in an extraordinarily complex arena. The book moves beyond previous debates, agreeing that while efficiencies and better value for money may yet be found, more fundamental reforms to the management and delivery of health services are essential prerequisites to bending the cost curve in the long run. While there is considerable controversy over direction and details of change, there also remains the challenge of getting agreement on the values or principles that would guide the reshaping of the policies, the structures, and the regulatory environment of health care in Canada. Leading experts from around the world representing a range of disciplines and professional backgrounds come together to organize and define the problems faced by policy-makers. Case studies from the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, the Nordic countries, and industrialized Asian countries such as Taiwan offer useful reform experiences for provincial governments in Canada. Finally, common Canadian cost factors, such as pharmaceuticals and technology, and paying the health workforce, are explored."--from publisher

The Governance of Health Care in Canada : the Romanow Papers, Volume 3 by Pierre-Gerlier Forest( )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The NAFTA puzzle : political parties and trade in North America( Book )

6 editions published between 1994 and 2019 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The NAFTA Puzzle: Political Parties and Trade in North America explores the political background of trade liberalization culminating in the signing of the historic North American agreement more than a decade after the North America Accord idea had been outright rejected. Experts from Canada, the U.S., and Mexico examine how each political party grappled with trade as the constituent base, interest group pressures, and ideologies shifted over broad time periods. The book treats each of Canada's long-standing national parties, the Republican and Democratic parties in the U.S., and Mexico's PRI historically, concluding that North America's principal parties have flip-flopped on the trade liberalization issue. The NAFTA Puzzle details the congressional vote in the U.S. and brings us all the way up to the Zapatista uprising in Mexico, ending with a discussion of the significance of NAFTA for overall trade liberalization and the future of trade and commercial relations on the continent
Governance and public policy in Canada : a view from the provinces by Michael M Atkinson( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three key themes unify this book. First, it addresses the role of policy convergence and divergence among provinces. Although the analysis acknowledges enduring differences in political culture and institutions, it also points to patterns of policy diffusion and convergence in specific areas in a number of provinces. Second, the book explores the push and pull between centralization and decentralization in Canada as it affects intergovernmental relations. Third, it underscores that although the provinces play a greater role in policy development than ever before, they now face a growing tension between their expanding policy ambitions and their capacity to develop, fund, implement, manage, and evaluate policy programs. Governance and Public Policy in Canada describes how the provincial state has adapted in the context of these changing circumstances to transcend its limited capacity while engaging with a growing number of civil society actors, policy networks, and intergovernmental bodies."--pub. desc
