Recent developments or issues: a world energy crisis; increased tensions and difficulties in world trade and monetary arrangements; problems with the special trade relations with the United States; the amount of tax dollars spent by the Federal government to offset regional economic disparities; the beginnings of development in Northern Canada; a shift in decision-making from the Federal Government to the Provincial Government; foreign investment and large corporations and their attack through the media and other groups; a belated recognition of the significance of Western Canada in the total Canadian economic picture. A discussion of the above issues, with examples and suggested directions. An admitted strong Western Canada point of view.
