Economy

so they finally admit it!

We get the Globe and Mail at home, and there was this article on jobs and the economy as regards China. It was interesting to read that some American economists are admitting that globalization does indeed harm most if not all of the 99%...a little late and how to take back what we have lost...

Saying Hello

Hi all,  I just found this website today and think I might stick around and read up on some articles and discuss them.

My main interest is crime and especiallly Organized Crime and the things that contribute to it in Canada.

I am interested in addressing todays social and economic issues in a meaningful way.

That said I also like to joke around and use a bit of humour.  I often engage in sarcasm but will try to spare the other users here that until they at least get to know me.

Demand side Economics

Why not articulate the refocussing of economics in Canada on switching from supply side economics to demand side?

The pushing of the cost of running a civilized society on to individuals is one of the main reaons for the lack of any recovery. Individuals have been squeezed so hard that they lack the ability to make any real choices in their consumption. They are forced to spend a large portion of their incomes on pure survival. While those with some left have to make choices between saving for retirement or their child's future education costs. This leaves little room for choice, discretionary spending or emergency savings.

Canada's two asbestos mines have shut down production and an NDP motion on abestos has revealed cracks in Conservative Party 'unity'

 

Is this the beginning of the end of the asbestos industry in Canada?

OFL Convention

Quote:
Fiery public union leader Sid Ryan has won a second-two year term as president of the Ontario Federation of Labour with a mandate to end internal strife and increase worker militancy on Tuesday.

More than 1,400 delegates at the federation's biennial convention acclaimed Ryan and supported his "unity team" that captured the other two top posts in the umbrella labour group that represents 54 unions and more than one million workers in the province.

Delegates also acclaimed Nancy Hutchison of the United Steelworkers for the secretary-treasurer's job and voted overwhelmingly for Irwin Nanda of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers as executive vice-president.
