In the book, she attacks nation’s political passivity and acceptance of the believed fact that the domestic economy fully depends on the global market situation and that is should follow the trends. Trapped in this view, governments act as a victims to the global economic process and accepts an its people and impose this view on the electorate. Canada’s economic troubles is not unique. Although, Canada is enjoying a period of relative economic growth, and the level of unemployment is at its lowest level since April 1976 at 6.8% in January 2001 (Tam). However, these 6.8% still mean 1.1 million people jobless.

Changing Canadian Identities in the 20th Century Is Canada a nation or has its control just switched empirical hands? As Professor Hutcheson asked, did Canada go from "Colony to Nation or Empire to Empire?" This question has greatly influenced Canada's changing identity since her birth as a British colony with Confederation in 1867 to the present day. The purpose of this essay is to critically analyse the shifting Canadian identities between the years 1890 to 1960. The objective is to illustrate Canada's transforming identity by using the novels The Imperialist by Sara Jeanette Duncan, Barometer Rising by Hugh MacLennan, and Fifth Business by Robertson Davies and to connect the stories of each of these works of fiction to the varying political, economic, and social issues of their times.
One of the reasons Canada entered into free trade was the high expectations for increased trade volume and job creation. Not a bad plan when you consider the flow of dollars through the Canadian economy and its spin offs of increased productivity and decrease in the unemployment rate. But what really happened when Canada entered into free trade was a series of events which brought the country into a recessionary period. Canada experienced a net loss of 138,000 jobs in the manufacturing section and had the worst rate of productivity among the G-7 countries. The desire to protect Canadian industry and jobs has given employers more bargaining power with regards to national programs such as unemployment insurance.

John A. MacDonald outlined the goals of Canada in the National Policy and these goals were accomplished in the period of the Laurier Boom. The first goal of MacDonald's National Policy was the establishment of protective tariffs on goods. Although formerly a supporter of free trade, MacDonald decided that the current circumstances were favorable to protectionism (Stevenson, 194). His advocacy for protective tariffs had great impact on Canadians, so much that the nation voted MacDonald into office in 1878. For the next eighteen years after the establishment of the National Policy, the Liberals held to a rigid free trade philosophy and “directed its main attack upon the tariff system and the anti-protectionist case came to enjoy wide acceptance” (194).
