Mike’s Saturday Editorial

Political and Economic Question of the Week


on Saturday, 27 January 2018 11:33

Imagine owning a store and declaring that under no circumstances will you match your competitors prices. That's what Prime Minister Trudeau did in Davos when he announced Canada will not match America's tax reductions and lower regulatory costs. The question is - what was gained by announcing to the world that the US is a better place to invest than Canada?

Trudeau: Workers before Profits! No Tax Cuts


on Thursday, 25 January 2018 08:33

 

After the IMF said Global Growth is at its fastest pace in 7 years because of the Trump tax cuts, at Davos Trudeau declared Canada will not cut taxes or regulation: "Too many corporations have put the pursuit of profit before the well-being of their workers" "You need to give back". Presumably giving workers tax cuts isn't giving back. Meanwhile Disney the latest to raise salaries, issue bonuses because of the Trump Tax cuts.

on Wednesday, 24 January 2018 12:52

 

The problems of waste and inefficiency continue year after year because Canadians are fine with a twitter account that costs 100K @ year, a small example of the Billions wasted every year without a Canadian outcry!

Minimum Wage Demands Trigger Job Losses


on Tuesday, 23 January 2018 06:55

 

Sharply raising the minimum wage is making the convenience and cost savings of technologies like Amazon's "Go App" red hot. No Cashiers, you simply walk through the store, pick up items you want and walk out.
