Abstract:

From the back cover: Government Limited challenges the view that big government is responsible for Canada's economic crisis. The fundamental problem with government, according to authro John Calvert, has been its subordination to business interests. This has resulted in the adoption of regressive social and economic policies which have sacrificed the interests of ordinary Canadians to placate the insatiable demands of the corporate sector. Calvert is no apologist for existing governments. He holds that the mismanagement of the public sector by the pro-business governments has resulted in widespread alienation among citizens towards public programs....The solution to Canada's economic crisis and to the deteriorating financial situation of governments lies in the adoption of a fundamentally different approaclh to economic policy. Calvert puts forward a controversial 10-point Alternative Economic Strategy which he believes can form the basis of this approach.
