World Can Meet Growing Food Demands and Limit Warming to 1.5 Degrees C, Study Says

Subject: Re: Opinion: B.C. finances precarious after just a few months of NDP governance,

Fraser Institute economists harp on a so-called "lost decade" under the previous NDP government, but a 2012 study by the University of British Columbia�s business school concludes neither Liberals nor the NDP were significantly better in managing the province�s debt or spending. The annual real GDP increased on average by 2.72% in the 1990s (NDP), and 2.36% during the 2000s (Liberals).
Families decide to invest in housing, cars for commuting, and education even if that means (horror!) running a temporary deficit. To make progress, the Province of B.C. must also put money upfront into housing, into transit, into education and into health care.  Failing to do so would not only be an abdication of responsibility but a more expensive option in the long run. 
1. B.C. Liberals and NDP spar over economic prowess while new study says neither is better
� a newly published study from the University of British Columbia�s business school concludes neither party is significantly better than the other when it comes to managing the province�s debt or spending.
The study looked at the performance of the B.C. economy and fiscal management under the NDP from 1991 to 2001, as well as under the Liberals between 2001 and 2013.
The report found that the NDP actually controlled spending and debt better than the Liberals, relative to other provinces over the same time period.

2. A Decade by Decade Review of BC�s Economic Performance

            Page 4
The  most  common  way  to  capture  economic  performance  is  to  look  at  the  evolution  of real  gross  domestic  product  �
the  total  value  of  goods  and  services  produced  each  year, adjusted to remove the effects of inflation. On this measure,
British Columbia has enjoyed reasonably steady economic growth over the last three decades with annual real GDP
increasing on average by:

2.12% in the 1980s,
2.72% in the 1990s, and
2.36% in the 2000s.
