Basic Income 2: The Entitling!

I tend to format sequels as horror movie titles. Don't mind me... actually, two interesting points were brought up that I wanted to address:

The Quebec child-care system has much lower standards than the guidelines here on PEI (and most other provinces). For example infants (generally considered under age 2) have a 1:3 ratio of babies to staff here, but in Quebec it is 1:5. that is outrageous and I would have been horrified if my daughter had been in such a situation. If going down to 7$ a day requires such a drop in standards and quality I want no part of it.

I'm by no means an expert on childcare, but what about a 1 to 5 ratio is so awful in terms of attention to infants? I'm interested to know.

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.

Beginning of the end for the Asbestos Industry?

http://www.thestar.com/news/article/1092076

http://blogs.canada.com/2011/11/02/the-most-anti-asbestos-tory-mps-can-do-is-abstain/

http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2011/11/20/asbestos-tory-conservative-party-harper_n_1104028.html

 

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?
