Economic Note providing an overview of the history of public transit in Montreal and of international experiences with private involvement

Over the past few decades, the costs of public transit in Montreal have outpaced services rendered. This occurred while many municipalities around the world opted to reform their public transit systems by increasing the involvement of the private sector. This Economic Note provides an overview of the history of public transit in Montreal and of international experiences with private involvement.

How increased competition and a smaller regulatory state can reduce corruption.

Viewpoint describing how increased competition and a smaller regulatory state can reduce corruption

There have been several corruption scandals in Quebec and in the rest of Canada in recent years. Corruption is a problem that affects all countries and all societies, but it is much more prevalent in certain regions than in others. Economic analysis has several things to teach us about these disparities and about economic principles that can check this scourge.

Activity-based funding of hospitals could help reduce wait times if accompanied by other, complementary measures.

Viewpoint explaining how activity-based funding of hospitals could help reduce wait times if accompanied by other, complementary measures

Quebec’s Health Minister, Gaétan Barrette, recently announced that the government wanted to transform the funding method for medical facilities in the health network by adopting activity-based funding, a model which the MEI has analyzed a number of times in recent years and which is the norm in most industrialized countries. This is a step in the right direction when it comes to reducing waiting times in Quebec hospitals.

It is difficult for innovative solutions like nurse-led clinics to establish themselves in a bureaucratic health care system.

Economic Note showing how difficult it is for innovative solutions like nurse-led clinics to establish themselves in a bureaucratic health care system

Quebec’s Health Department is senselessly blocking the opening of clinics run by nurse practitioners who specialize in front-line care. Yet these doctorless clinics would respond to real needs among the population, access to front-line care being one of the main failings of Quebec’s health system. Moreover, a nurse practitioner costs the health care system around 1/3 of what a general practitioner costs, shows an Economic Note published by the MEI.

The inefficiency of running large deficits versus other ways of stimulating economic growth.

Viewpoint highlighting the inefficiency of running large deficits versus other ways of stimulating economic growth

A number of Bay Street economists are urging the federal government to loosen its purse strings even more and run larger deficits than announced during the election campaign in order to “stimulate” the Canadian economy. This short-term perspective, however, fails to take into account several important considerations.
