Federal government failure in Canada : a review of the Auditor General's reports, 1988-2013 by Charles Lammam( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The discussion of the limitations of government and subsequent government failure is wholly absent from debate in Canada where, unfortunately, we still assume that governments act benevolently and without institutional constraints. That this is not true is plain to see in the pages of the Auditor General of Canada's reports, which provide concrete evidence of the existence and extent of federal government failure in Canada. The Public Choice school of thought, which applies traditional economic methods and techniques to explaining the actions and decisions made by those who operate in the political marketplace, has striven to explain government failure empirically. This publication was written to inform Canadians about the theories and insights of Public Choice (section 1); to document government failure from the reports of the Auditor General (section 2); to calculate a reasonable estimate of the cost of government failure based on these reports (section 3); and to describe briefly the mechanisms available to reduce government failure (section 4)
Unseen equalization : provincial subsidies in federal programs by David MacKinnon( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For many years, debate on Canada's fiscal transfers has focused largely on programs that transfer funds from the federal government to provincial and territorial governments, such as Equalization, the Canada Health Transfer, andthe Canada Social Transfer. Academic studies of these programs have been extensive. Expert panels have opined on them. Discussions among officials are constant. These activities have occasionally led to intense public debate, controversy, and conflict. This attention is understandable, as these programs are both large and easily identifiable. This paper provides an overview of the interprovincial redistributive effects of certain federal programs. How many such arrangements exist? What are the dimensions and characteristics of the most obvious of them? Are unseen regional subsidies large enough to change the way Canadians think about the entire regional subsidy effort?

Comparing the debt burdens of Ontario and California lessons from the past and solutions for the future by Robert P Murphy( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By any measure, the province of Ontario is carrying a much worse debt burden than the state of California. To many in the United States and Canada, California represents the epitome of irresponsible government spending coupled with poor cash management. In this context, discovering thatOntario's financial position is far more precarious should serve as a wake-up call to Ontario policy makers and citizens alike. To get a sense of just how serious Ontario's debt situation is, the paper compares Ontario's indebtedness, across a host of measures, to California's
Economic principles for prosperity by Robert P Murphy( )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A central goal of the Fraser Institute is to provide interested Canadians with information about what works and what doesn't when it comes to creating, maintaining, and improving prosperity. In short, our view of a prosperous society is one that affords opportunities to everyone for personal and professional fulfilment. This book is about how best to achieve those aims. One of the book's underlying tenets is that stagnation has been the overwhelming norm for human society. We recognize that the remarkable progress that began to take hold in the 18th century is atypical in the scope of human history
Financial savings : restructuring education in Ontario using the British Columbia model by Deani A Nevan Van Pelt( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ontario is suffering from significant deficits, mounting debt, and high interest costs that are increasingly crowding out other spending. The recently re-elected provincial government has declared its commitment to balancing the budget and beginning the process of reducing the province's substantial debt beginning in 2017/18, but a dearth of specific details have plagued the government and the credibility of its fiscal plan. This paper examines whether the structure of education in British Columbia may be of particular interest to Ontario from a financial perspective

Measuring income mobility in Canada, 2016 by Charles Lammam( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Too often, an underlying assumption in the income inequality debate is that low- and high-income Canadians are the same people year in and year out. In reality, however, Canadians are not permanently stuck in certain income groups. Over the course of their lives, the overwhelming majority move up and down the income ladder.Fluctuation in our income is a part of the natural cycle of our lives. People typically start off with relatively low income early on when they are young, new to the workforce, and lack work and life experience. Once they acquire education, job-related skills, and experience, their income tends to increase until it peaks in middle age and then drops again as they retire (income may fall, perhaps temporarily, if someone exits the workforce or changes jobs).Using data obtained from Statistics Canada, this study tracks nearly 1 million Canadians starting in 1993 to measure how their income changes after five years (1993-1998), ten years (1993-2003), and 19 years (1993-2012). The people cove
Taxes versus the necessities of life : the Canadian consumer tax index, 2009 by Milagros Palacios( )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2018 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The annual study tracks the total tax bill of the average Canadian household from 1961 to 2015, and looks at both visible and hidden taxes that families pay to the federal, provincial and local governments, including income, payroll, sales, property, health, fuel and alcohol taxes, and more
The price of public health care insurance 2016 edition by Milagros Palacios( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Canadians often misunderstand the true cost of our public health care system. This occurs partly because Canadians do not incur direct expenses for their use of health care, and partly because Canadians cannot readily determine the value of their contribution to public health care insurance. In 2016, the estimated average payment for public health care insurance ranges from $3,620 to $11,795 for six common Canadian family types, depending on the type of family. For the average Canadian family, between 2006 and 2016, the cost of public health care insurance increased 1.4 times faster than average income, 1.3 times as fast as the cost of food and at about the same pace as the cost of shelter. The 10% of Canadian families with the lowest incomes will pay an average of about $443 for public health care insurance in 2016. The 10% of Canadian families who earn an average income of $60,850 will pay an average of $5,516 for public health care insurance, and the families among the top 10% of income earners
