Confronting economic challenges from abroad will require a sound fiscal framework, economic policies that promote growth, and measures to create opportunities for Canadians, according to the C.D. Howe Institute’s 2015 shadow federal budget. In “Challenges, Growth and Opportunity: A Shadow Federal Budget for 2015,” authors William B.P. Robson and Alexandre Laurin outline measures that would help Canadians put their education, skills and talents to work, and enjoy economic security once they have left the workforce.
