Using public-private partnerships to improve transportation infrastructure in Canada by Charles Lammam( )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is general agreement among diverse groups and individuals that Canada's transportation infrastructure desperately requires improvement. As governments move to confront this challenge, it is not enough that they simply commit to building more roads or bridges; the infrastructure must be built on time and on budget, be of high quality, and be well-maintained. The option of using Public Private Partnerships presents an opportunity for Canada to improve its transportation infrastructure. P3s are not a panacea but, where appropriate, they have the potential to provide greater benefits than the conventional model."

Labour relations laws in Canada and the United States : an empirical comparison by Hugh MacIntyre( )

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

This study measures the extent to which labour relations laws bring flexibility to the labour market while balancing the interests of employers, employees, and unions. Labour market flexibility allows employees to change jobs (orindustries) more easily in search of better compensation or working conditions and employers to change the mix of capital and labour to respond to market changes
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)

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

3 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 41 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

The economic effects of living wage laws by Charles Lammam( )

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

For many years, Canadian governments have tried to legislate higher earnings for low-wage workers. With origins at the municipal level, living wage laws are a relatively new policy that gained prominence in American cities startingin the mid-1990s. Living wage laws are similar to minimum wage legislation. Both mandate by law that workers be paid a certain wage rate. However, living wage laws differ by their coverage (covering a much smaller group of workers) andby their amount (requiring a much higher wage)
