Economies are all about people, their well-being, development and health. People are the drivers of their country’s economy, as consumers, workers, innovators and entrepreneurs. And as citizens and stakeholders, they rightly expect better policies for better lives. The Canadian economy desperately needs more productive investment: to create jobs, to increase productivity and to meet critical global goals like combating climate change.
WHEN we have politicians who lack knowledge and experience managing our economic affairs, then the golden years 1950 - 1973 of capitalism will never return. The problem with today's political leaders is leadership and direction. Furthermore they lack management skills to make and implement decisions that effect our economy. Management is mostly about people, who are the consumers. Techniques and procedures are ineffective means for decisions makers.
