Foreign Ownership of Canadian Industry

Synopsis

Foreign Ownership of Canadian Industry by A. E. Safarian

Foreign ownership is an ongoing national policy issue for Canadians, and a matter of utmost concern in the public mind. Recently, the issue has been hotly debated in sectors as diverse as telecommunications, mining, technology, retail, steel, and aerospace. Foreign Ownership of Canadian Industry, A.E. Safarian's classic investigation into the behaviour of branch-plant firms in Canada, has proven an enduring and important analysis of this national policy problem and is now back in print. This third edition of Foreign Ownership of Canadian Industry features a new preface contextualizing Safarian's influential work against contemporary economic issues and policies. As the question of foreign takeovers becomes increasingly critical not only in Canada but in other countries as well, Safarian emphasizes the continuity of concerns over who owns a country's industries.
