Debates on the role of the state and the viability of Canadian economic development are especially intense during periods of change, such as the contemporary era of globalization. In this completely revised, updated, and enlarged second edition of The Political Economy of Canada Professors Howlett, Netherton, and Ramesh outline the principal structural elements of the Canadian political economy and describe the importance of such factors as resources, social class, and international trade. The authors stress the significance of political institutions at the national, international, and subnational levels that substantially affect the production and distribution of wealth. Three chapters consider the strengths and weaknesses of major approaches to Canada's political economy, the liberal and socialist theories as well as the staples approach pioneered by Harold Innis. Subsequent chapters explore the structure and organization of, and the interrelationships between, the state,labour, and capital in Canada, and show how their fragmented and decentralized nature limits the capacity of governments to 'manage' a globalized economy. The book outlines the history of the domestic political economy and examines how Canada is linked to the international political economy through the World Trade Organization and NAFTA. Particular attention is devoted to the constraints imposed on the Canadian state by a market-oriented, resource-exporting economy and by growing reliance on US trade. The final chapters examine monetary and fiscal management and industrial policy, demonstrating how these policy arenas are shaped by ideology, new globalizing and regionalizing constraints, and the (dis)organization of the major policy actors.

Rising income inequality has been at the forefront of public debate in Canada in recent years, yet there is still much to learn about the economic forces driving the distribution of earnings and income in this country and how they might evolve in the future. With research showing that the tax-and-transfer system is losing the ability to counteract income disparity, the need for policy-makers to understand the factors at play is all the more urgent. Income Inequality provides a comprehensive review of Canadian inequality trends, including changing earnings and income dynamics among the middle class and top earners, wage and job polarization across provinces, and persistent poverty among vulnerable groups. The Institute for Research on Public Policy (IRPP), in collaboration with the Canadian Labour Market and Skills Researcher Network (CLSRN), presents new evidence by some of the country’s leading experts on the impact of skills and education, unionization and labour relations laws, as well as the complex interplay of redistributive policies and politics over time. Amid growing anxieties about the economic prospects of the middle class, Income Inequality will serve to inform the public discourse on inequality, an issue that ultimately concerns all Canadians.
