Fiscal policy in Canada: 1963-1984

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • This study takes as its basic premise that, although monetary policy in Canada during the post-second World War period has been extensively documented and analyzed, the broad strategies and outcomes of fiscal policy are not as well documented or understood. As a result, a large part of the study is descriptive, building a chronological history of recent fiscal policy. Emphasis throughout is on the stabilization aspects of federal budgetary policy.
