Less Debt, More Growth: A Shadow Federal Budget for 2019

February 7, 2019

February 7 – Ottawa should spur growth through better tax competitiveness and get back into the black by curbing overspending, says the C.D. Howe Institute’s annual Shadow Federal Budget. In “Less Debt, More Growth: A Shadow Federal Budget for 2019”, authors William B.P. Robson and Alexandre Laurin show Ottawa could balance its budget in 2023/24 by using greener, more growth-friendly taxes, containing federal operating costs, and still have room to enhance Canadians’ opportunities to work, save, and retire securely.
