Séparation, annexion, et fédéralisme : au-delà des préceptes normatifs usuels


  • Carter, Richard

    (École nationale d’administration publique)


The author uses a Public Choice approach to analyze the evolution of the political structures of Canadian society and the options facing Canadian society today. The insights provided by a positive approach as opposed to the traditional normative approach are discussed. The records of economic and political history are used to validate the insights provided by this economic approach.
