Abstract

The socio-economic problems afflicting Québec in various activity sectors are associated phenomena stemming largely from Québec's relative underperformance in terms of growth, economic development and job creation. We shall see that Québec's underperformance has lasted close to 20 years and has substantially worsened since the early 1990s. Despite economic growth of close to 2% per year since the early 1980s, Québec's relative position is deteriorating, and in order to0501ntain economic and social services of a quality comparable to those which the Rest of Canada and the US can afford now and in the future, a sharp change of course is required. Québec urgently needs a genuine new Quiet Revolution. In this article, we will survey Québec's economic evolution over the last two decades, and we will put forward some clues for solutions which, when put into place, will ensure Quebeckers with a more promising future. Les problèmes socio-économiques qui affligent le Québec dans plusieurs secteurs d'activité sont des phénomènes interreliés qui découlent en bonne partie de la sous-performance relative du Québec en termes de croissance, de développement économique et de création d'emplois. Cette sous-performance dure depuis près de vingt ans et elle s'est sensiblement accrue depuis le début des années 90. Malgré une croissance économique de près de 2 % par an, depuis le début des années 80, la situation relative du Québec se dégrade et pour0501ntenir des services économiques et sociaux d'une qualité comparable à celle que peuvent et pourront s'offrir le reste du Canada et les États-Unis, un vigoureux coup de barre s'impose. Le Québec a un urgent besoin d'un véritable nouvelle révolution tranquille. Dans cet article, nous survolerons l'évolution économique du Québec des deux dernières décennies, puis nous apporterons quelques éléments de solution qui, lorsque mises en ouvre, assureront un avenir plus prometteur aux Québécois.
