Trade is not something we are afraid of. It is not something we oppose. But we are afraid of the sorts of rules contained within trade agreements that establish more rights for corporations. Agreements like CETA and the TPP are pushing the world in the wrong direction.
Crony capitalists are 14% poorer than two years ago.
'Canada's problem is Mexico, not oil.'
British magazine dissects his supposed “hot Hibernian temper"
No one in Vienna or Geneva seemed to care about their allegedly humiliating inclusion in The Economist. So why Vancouver? Well, because we're all afraid it's true, aren't we?
Overvalued real estate markets in Canada and elsewhere show an "unhappy resemblance" to the conditions that existed in America prior to the financial crisis. So says The Economist, which released a se...
It is important that we get it right for the generation that will shape our work force and policy decisions for decades to come. Understanding the motivations and the desired experience students seek in their post-secondary education, and how they view education as a life-long pursuit, is critical to the success of new models for education.

"The Fourth Revolution: The Global Race to Reinvent the State" by Economist Editor in Chief John Micklethwaite and Economist Managing Editor Adrian Wooldridge is a well-written argument for change. T...
This is about as Canadian as it gets. The Economist, the esteemed British weekly, printed this letter to the editor its most recent edition regarding a story about Canadian "freemen." Michael Petrou...
We don't know for sure who will be tapped for the job of Governor of the Bank of Canada. What we do know is that the individual will be a Canadian. No other nationalities were invited to apply. But, in 2013, does such a citizenship restriction even make any sense? Or is it just another manifestation of good, old-fashioned Canadian parochialism?
If it wasn't enough to be ranked the best city in a country of 34 million, Calgary has also been ranked the 5th best city to live in the entire world by the Economist Intelligence Unit's Most Livable Cities Survey for the last three consecutive years.
To think that this city of roughly 1.2 million people is one of the top five cities in a world of over 7 billion people is absolutely mind blowing.
When a reporter approaches me about a column I wrote on the lack of storytelling in T.V. journalism, I have some explaining to do. "Want to know why broadcast news still starts so many stories at the end ... tells you effect before cause ... is so hard to understand ... to remember?" "Sure," she says. "Let me tell you a story ..."
Switzerland may have to deal with a few more dirty diapers next year. According to a new report by the Economist Intelligence Unit, an an independent company with The Economist Group, the world's bes...
Pondering the genesis of hipsterdom, I often trace it back to Vice, and the importance they laid on the concept of "cool." I mean, Vice didn't invent it, they just presented a pre-existing sub-culture in a consumable format. And yeah: back then, I understood what Vice was because I was living it. But it's not 1997. After having a kid, I was admittedly nervous about having a full-colour, glossy magazine showing stylized images of syringes, used condoms and blood-soaked models lying around the house.
You'd have thought Maclean's would have blazoned the death of Section 13 all over its front cover. With a massive headline along the lines of "SCREW YOU, CENSORS!!!" Or "WE WON!!!" Instead, the cover featured a generic picture of an innocuous youngish woman and an innocuous youngish man grinning maniacally and the silly headline: "The majority of us are singles. So why do we still live in a couples world?"
When was the last time you discussed Time Magazine around the dinner table? Probably last week, when they published the one with the mother and her older child... breastfeeding (shhh, not so loud). Why did Time run with such a controversial cover story? They need to sell magazines.
Samantha Brick was recently slammed for her DailyMail article lamenting her status as a "pretty woman." In the article she says: "There are downsides to being pretty -- the main one being that other w...
I am groggy with disbelief at the London Financial Times' suggestion that British justice should now, having preserved its virtue and a reasonable facsimile of due process for centuries, adopt the American plea bargain, at least in corporate matters.
