Hard Money, Hard Times: Why Zero Inflation Hurts Canadians

After the recession of the early nineties, the economy is once again booming as a result of the more moderate policies pursued by the Bank of Canada in 1996 and 1997. Why then is the bank so anxious to return to a high-interest, hard-money approach?
The eight independent economists featured in this volume argue that a return to the hard-money approach of the early nineties will be disastrous for the country. They explain why the bank is pursuing high-interest rates once again, and they show why moderate policies on inflation and interest rates are essential if we want to create growth, shrink unemployment, and further reduce government deficits.
