The myth of North American carbon reduction laggards by Ben Eisen( )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the current global narrative, Canada and the United States are villains when it comes to addressing climate change. The United States, in particular, is condemned for its refusal to sign the Kyoto Protocol, binding international regime to reduce GHG emissions. Canada comes in for vilification from its environmental leaders for having high per capita GHG emissions and for having failed to achieve its GHG reductions targets under the Kyoto Protocol. In contrast, the affluent countries in Western and Northern Europe are often cast as the heroes in this global climate change narrative, and they are lauded for ratifying the Kyoto Protocol and for achieving significant emissions reductions
Public administration wage growth : comparing wage growth in industries across the Canadian economy, 1998-2009 by Ben Eisen( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper provides further context on the rate of wage growth for public servants compared to other workers in the economy by analyzing Statistics Canada data that tracks the average wage growth in a wide range of industries, including public administration. An examination of this data shows that wage growth for federal and provincial public administration workers has been faster than the wage growth experienced by any other industry tracked by Statistics Canada during this time period
The economic, environmental and political consequences of carbon pricing : case studies in pricing-based carbon controls by Eric Merkley( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper focuses on eight case studies from around the world to examine the economic, environmental and political effect of ambitious carbon pricing policies and proposals. In several of the case studies we examine, the policies failed to achieve their stated objective of significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions without causing severe economic shocks. In some cases, the policies did not work because design flaws limited their environmental efficacy. In others, projected negative economic shocks and program design flaws alienated key constituencies and resulted in political backlashes that either led to policy reversals or prevented implementation
The real have-nots in Confederation : Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia : how Canada's equalization program creates generous programs and large governments in have-not provinces by Ben Eisen( )

Green jobs : the European experience by Kenneth P Green( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many politicians and activists in Canada champion the benefits of green technology and government spending on green job creation as a strategy for alleviating unemployment and spurring economic growth. These expectations clash with both economic theory and practical experience in Europe. Green programs in Spain destroyed 2.2 jobs for every green job created, while the capital needed for one green job in Italy could create almost five jobs in the general economy

Resource consumption and economic production in Canada and the United States : how economic activity in North America benefits people everywhere by Ben Eisen( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

North Americans are frequently criticized for consuming more than "their fair share" of the world's resources. For example, the complaint is often heard that although Canada and the United States make up only 6 per cent of the world's population, we represent 25 per cent of the world's annual oil consumption. If Canadians and Americans were to drastically reduce their consumption of resources, thereby slowing down economic production, people all around the world would be worse off, as the world would have considerably fewer charitable organizations, new medicines and thriving companies

The size and cost of Manitoba's public sector by Ben Eisen( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many observers of Manitoba's economy and politics have suggested that Manitoba's public sector is abnormally large by Canadian standards and that the province's high level of government employment hinders economic performance. In this policy series, we empirically assess the claim that Manitoba's public sector is unusually large. Specifically, we examine patterns of public sector employment in Manitoba compared with other Canadian jurisdictions. Our analysis of Statistics Canada data shows that Manitoba's government sector is indeed much larger than that of most other provinces. Specifically, the rate of government employment at the combined provincial and local levels relative to population is high by Canadian standards. This paper also examines the cost to taxpayers of maintaining this high rate of public sector employment and finds that it is significant
Tuition fees and university participation for youth from low-income families : an interprovincial analysis by Ben Eisen( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines Statistics Canada data to determine the relationship between tuition fees and university participation rates in Canada. The data show that the Canadian provinces with very low tuition rates do not have consistently higher university participation rates than do provinces with higher tuition levels. This confirms previous analysis by the Montreal Economic Institute. Perhaps more surprisingly, the Statistics Canada data show no positive correlation between low tuition fees and university participation in the specific case of young adults from low-income households. In other words, during the period studied, young adults from low-income households in the provinces with the lowest tuition levels were no more likely to attend university than young adults from similarly low-income households in provinces with much higher tuition rates
