Join the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy and co-authors for the launch of Fiscal Federalism and Equalization Policy in Canada. Fiscal Federalism and Equalization Policy in CanadaFiscal Federalism and Equalization Policy in Canada aims to increase public understanding of equalization and fiscal federalism by providing a comparative and multidisciplinary perspective on the history, politics, and economics of equalization policy in Canada. The authors — Daniel Béland, André Lecours, Gregory P. Marchildon, Haizhen Mou and M. Rose Olfert — provide a brief history, an analysis of the politics of equalization as witnessed over the last fifteen years, and a discussion of key economic debates concerning the role of the program and its effects. They also explore the relationship between equalization and other components of fiscal federalism, particularly the Canada Health Transfer and the Canada Social Transfer. The result is an analysis that draws from the best scholarship available in the fields of economics, economic history, political science, political sociology, and public policy. This is the third book in The Johnson Shoyama Series on Public Policy, published by the University of Toronto Press.
