Minding the Public Purse gives us an insider's account of how Saskatchewan avoided fiscal catastrophe and reveals the dynamics of the federal-provincial finance ministers' meetings where Paul Martin took centre stage in Canadian politics and began his radical transformation of Canada's finances. Although initially opposed to the radical cuts and downloading imposed by Martin in his 1995 budget, MacKinnon now argues that they were essential and analyzes how they have irrevocably transformed the Canadian federation."--Jacket." ;
