CHOICE Review

This is a fascinating study of the approach taken to the international economy by decision makers in Canada, a small economy bordered by the US, the world's most dynamic economy. Characterized by Pierre Trudeau as the mouse in an elephant and mouse relationship, Canada has been quite adroit in asserting its interests and managing the development of its major economic sectors. Its well-known staples economy has benefitted from a century and a half of smart globalization policies that have nurtured its mineral, timber, agricultural, and manufacturing industries. Hydroelectric power was nationalized in Ontario to keep electricity prices low for manufacturing. Wheat boards were established to give local producers more clout in international markets. Nickel was developed by an American firm, Inco, which was constrained during WW I from selling to Germany, even while the US was neutral in the conflict. Finally, the beer and whiskey industries give excellent examples of the difficulties family-owned firms have in surviving beyond a couple generations. By bringing together essays from both historians and economists, editors Smith (Univ. of Liverpool, UK) and Anastakis (Trent Univ., Canada) have given readers a set of studies that puts the Canadian case most instructively in the context of intelligent globalization. --Peter Karl Kresl, Bucknell University
