Description:

The paper reviews "Ruling Canada: Corporate Cohesion and Democracy", and looks at how Brownlee observes that Canada has been in a state of decline in recent decades. The paper reveals that aside from the Depression, the 1990s have comprised the worst decade of the entire century, and at the same time, Canada relinquished its safety net even more than the U.S., so that the gap between rich and poor has continually widened.

The paper explains that the cause underlying this recent trend is found in the economic elite, a term which refers to a unified group, and especially owners and managers of business firms that "can achieve unity and solidarity around key issues of public policy and promote a common agenda".
