The New Society: New Title, Same Old Debate


The problem of semantics in terms such as "free market system," "capitalism," "socialism," "free enterprise." The "mixed economy" that exists in Canada. Comments on the assertion by the Prime Minister announcing the federal spending cuts that Canada had entered "a new economic era" and that a "new kind of society" must be created. Problems foreseen if government takes a bigger role in Health care. A debate against government intervention, and the economic problems in more general terms. The work of the Royal Commission on Corporate Concentration. An anti-business bias in Canada. How the economic system has been judged. Who defends the competitive enterprise system? A positive view of the future.
