Jim Stanford - Paper Boom
Paper Boom by Jim Stanford
Paper Boom describes the slowdown in private-sector investment in Canada over the past 20 years and critically surveys several alternative strategies that have been postponed. Stanford calls for financial re-regulation and outlines a model of social investment that would shift the emphasis from financial speculation to the expansion of real economic activity and job creation. Paper Boom is available in major bookstores and can also be ordered from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) at (613) 563-1341.
