Business and Government in Canada: Issues of Government Relations, The Role of Elites, Government Intervention, Regulation and Deregulation
This is a 3 page paper discussing business and government in Canada in regards to government intervention, business relations, the roles of elites and regulation. The history of Canadian business involves a great amount of government intervention within the business industry to the extent that most historical Canadian business ventures are those which had high government involvement such as the Canadian Pacific Railway and Air Canada. However many business critics believe that this intervention is based on the Canadian government’s basic belief that the government can do a better job of controlling the economic interests of business which is contrary to those within the business industry who believe that free markets and competition actually do a better job of distributing goods and services. The practice of the government however changed in the 1980s when pressure from the corporate elite within Canada lead to a new approach in government relations with business and industry which became one of deregulation, privatization, and assistance within the competitive marketplace.
