Subject: No pipelines? No prosperity, Lorrie Goldstein, Toronto Sun, April 27
To: Letters Editor <>

Are more pipelines really in the best economic interests of all Canadians? While private gains may accrue to the oil and gas industry when exports increase, huge costs  are borne by our environment. It would be much better to protect our commercial fishing and tourism industries, and invest in public transit, building retrofits, and renewable energy. Not only would many more jobs be created and future export industries created, but there would be fewer carbon emissions, and less resistance from residents of the coast.

As for the suffering of individuals who have lost jobs, our federal government can always take compensatory action when the private sector falters,  As demonstrated during times of war or financial crisis, the government of Canada has immense fiscal power that comes from ownership of a central bank. Through targeted spending, the Liberal government can ensure that all Canadians are protected during an economic downturn.


1. The Economic Costs and Benefits of the Proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline
If the full costs of carbon emissions from extraction, processing and combustion
were counted, the pipeline would likely be uneconomical. While private gains accrue to the oil and gas industry, huge costs are borne by others.

Subject: Re:  Bank of Canada�s Stephen Poloz gives the nod to Trudeau�s deficits: Walkom, April 14, 2016

Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz understands that federal government spending must adjust to decisions of the non-government sectors. The household sector is over-leveraged and must save more than it spends in order to reduce debt. This means less money circulates in the economy. Also, the price of oil has dropped and Canada has a larger trade deficit. Again more money is leaving the economy to purchase foreign goods than foreigners are buying here. When demand at home drops, domestic businesses are understandingly reluctant to invest in new productive capacity, and will retrench.

So if decisions of the private and external sectors result in a stagnating economy, only government can prevent a downward spiral. Without federal deficit spending, the Canadian economy will not miraculously balance itself. 


William Mitchell is Professor in Economics and Director of the Centre of Full Employment and Equity (CofFEE), University of Newcastle, NSW, Australia

At last count there were two broad macroeconomic sectors � the government and the non-government. The non-government sector can be decomposed into the private domestic sector and the external sector. The private domestic sector can be further decomposed into households who consume and firms who invest (in productive capital).

Macroeconomics is easy � that's it! 2 broad spending sectors and then some more detail.
