THE NEOLIBERAL EXPERIMENT – LOWER TAXES ON THE RICH, DEREGULATION OF LABOR AND PRODUCT MARKETS, FINANCIALIZATION, AND GLOBALIZATION – HAS BEEN A SPECTACULAR FAILURE.
Canada has experienced change from the Golden Days (from 1948 to 1974) to food banks, beggars and the growth of our economy going to the very rich. The Golden Days experienced a balanced, business and government, economy, then has suffered the “spectacular failure” of neoliberism. We should not attribute the failure to stop the spectacular failure to either dishonesty or stupidity by the Members of Parliament. The lack of effort and rational thought by both Members, political parties and voters, has enabled international corporations and financiers to introduce that “neoliberal experiment”.
A brief and appearance before the House of Commons Finance Committee in 2016, expanded to the “100 Years of Income Tax” paper in 2017 and further expanded to book size effort in 2019. The concepts, conclusions and policy options represent 5 full time years of study of economics, taxation and monetary thought, books, literature and audios by some of the worlds foremost practitioners in those fields. If you and our politicians learn as much, Canada could lead in restoring our democracy.
FINA (the House of Commons National Finance Committee). The brief was written and submitted in the summer of 2016, followed by personal appearance before the Committee on October 19, 2016. It is only 2425 words total length but deals with several basic concepts.
Income Tax was introduced in Canada by a legislation on August 17, 1917. The “100 years of Income tax” was written as a review of its application and as an expansion of the concepts submitted to FINA. It is 5230 words total length.
Continuing study, research and rational consideration of the spectacular failure of the policies from 1974 to the present led to a 14,108 word expansion of the policy concepts was written in 2018 & 2019. The frustration of continual exposure to articles and talks detailing the “spectacular failure” of current policies prompted the need for discussion of “rational policies”. This book has been described as “ a timely contribution to the Canadian political economy”. Another reader stated “ Many people can focus on the problems but not the potential solutions, you propose solutions”. The book strives to be readable by those who are not, as the author was not, economists.
