    Abstract

    This article summarizes the elements that are in common in most economists' recommendations on how to raise productivity in Canada. Some of the recommendations require governments to tackle issues such as removing interprovincial trade barriers and reforming employment insurance where firmly established interests would be rocked. The private sector would have to shed some complacency. But the pay-offs would be enormous. Economists have come together impressively on an action plan to raise productivity, now they need to hone their communications skills to convince the country to swallow the prescribed medicine.
