Who are the most powerful businessmen in Canada? How large is the corporate elite? And how much influence do the, foreign owners of branch plants have over the Canadian economy?
Author Jorge Niosi examines the anatomy of corporate, power in Canada, stressing the difference between the owners of' large corporations and the lawyers, accountants and others who advise and assist them. He compares the Anglo-Saxon business establishment with the francophone interests based mainly in Quebec.
