From the back cover: The papers in this ground breaking book constitute a unique collection of information about the underground economy and how it is manifested in a variety of countries. Section One attempts to measure Canada's underground economic activity and provides a specific estimate of the impact that tax changes have on its size. It also looks at the problems of tax evasion and tax avoidance. Section Two deals with the size of the underground substance economy, the legal aspects of tlhe underground economy in the United States, and an asseeement of the economic activities of the Mafia. Section Three analyzes the underground economy abroad, specifically in the United States, Britain, Mexico, Peru, Chile, Russia and China. The fourth section returns to Canada and examines some policy implications of the underground economy. A survey detailed in Section One shows that a majority of Canadians believe that they do not receive enough benefits for the taxation they pay. Section Four offers a solution to the problem of tax evasion and underground economic activity; the adoption of user fees and user taxes
How good is Canadian health care? : 2004 report : an international comparison of health care systems by Nadeem Esmail( )

24 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edition of How Good Is Canadian Health Care? provides answers to a series of questions that are important to resolve if Canada is to make the correct choices as it amends its health care policies. The study is strictly comparative and examines a wide number of factors for the member countries of the OECD in arriving at the answers to the questions posed. In this study, we primarily compare Canada to other countries that also have universal access, publicly funded, health care systems. Since the United States and Mexico do not, we often ignore these countries in the comparisons made. The study's focus, therefore, is not whether we should "abandon the key elements of Canada's compassionate approach to health care delivery," but how we organize to achieve it. To answer this crucial question, which is also the focus of the current debate about health care reform in Canada, we examine whether other industrialized, universal-access countries have implemented those policies that are at the centre of the health care debate in Canada: policies that have been shown to produce, at lower cost, superior access to, and outcomes from, health care than Canada's policies do

Government spending facts 2 by Isabella Horry( Book )

9 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study analyses spending by the three levels of government - federal, provincial, and local - and constructs a profile of who benefits from government expenditure. In 1990 government redistributed 10.0% of GDP through social programs (other than CPP), an increase from 6.7% in 1970. Interest payments made up 20.3% of government spending in 1990, up from 10.4% in 1970. The province that received the least total government spending per capita in 1990 was British Columbia, at $10,647. The province that received the most spending per capita was Nova Scotia, at $12,372, while of all governments, the Territories received the most from all levels of government, at $27,707 per capita. All provinces have experienced an increase in the fraction of government spending to total provincial GDP since 1970. Social security payments for all the Atlantic provinces amount to only 10.8% of total social security payments made in the country. Of the provincial/territorial governments, the Territories spend the most per capita, followed by Alberta, while Prince Edward Island spends the least. Ontario receives 60% of all federal interest paid on the outstanding public debt, and yet it pays just 45% of the taxes collected by the federal government
