Where to buy it


When it was first published in 1972, Corporate Canada offered a down-to-earth book about Canadian business and government economic policy.
It offers contemporary case studies of Eaton's, the CPR, the family farm; it examines the continuing U.S. influence on sectors of the Canadian economy including energy and electronics; and assesses the ongoing development of Trudeau's economic policy.
Drawn largely from the pages of the legendary Last Post magazine, Corporate Canada offers a fascinating snapshot of the Canadian economy in the early 1970s.
