The (Real) Bottom Line on Taxes, Public-Private Partnerships, and Canada's Federal Budget
Hassan Masum, 25 Feb 05

Halfway between the content-free soundbite and the seldom-read policy paper, the Canadian Center for Policy Alternatives has two concise primers on why taxes are good for you and the real cost of public-private partnerships. Irreverent yet informative; redistribution encouraged.

These are the same folks who release an "Alternative Federal Budget" each year, showing how they think Canada's federal budget could have been designed to better maximize social welfare. The 2005 Alternative Budget has just been released, and makes an interesting comparison with Canada's actual 2005 budget (which, incidentally, includes an entire chapter on sustainability initiatives - finally!). Like its predecessors, even when you disagree with parts of it the detailed analysis shows clearly that "another world is possible".
