The Next Decade

A joint meeting of The Empire Club of Canada and The Canadian Club of Toronto. Great Britain's progress and portents for the ensuing years. Drawing lessons from the mistakes of the past and encouragement and inspiration from the successes. A review, with statistics and figures of 1959 for Great Britain. The British budget. Developments in Europe; the Common Market between Belgium, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, and Luxembourg. Some possible trade associations that didn't happen. The Free Trade association between Austria, Norway, Denmark, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, and Great Britain. Problems and possibilities for the Common Market. The true identity of interest between Britain and Canada and other members of the Commonwealth; something more basic and profound in order to secure the future of the English-speaking peoples. A review of events over the past ten years of British achievements in trade and industry. Changes over the last ten years: advances in social and living standards; increasing degree of mechanization in manufacturing processes; problems of adjustment and education in industrial relations. The importance of preserving and recognizing the human element as a main asset. Canadian-British relations based upon interdependence and mutual interest. A heartening augury for the next decade.
