Opportunity in the turmoil

Released April 2009

The current economic turmoil is certainly a cause for concern, but it also can be a time for opportunity and hope – if we are prepared to take bold action.

Despite public concerns about the current economic slowdown, Canadians have an opportunity to build our future prosperity by ensuring we keep a balanced perspective on short-term and long-term challenges. In their Report on Canada, Opportunity in the turmoil, the Institute for Competitiveness & Prosperity and the Martin Prosperity Institute call on individuals, business leaders, and governments to look for hope and optimism in the stormy times of the current economic downturn.
