Economic Note explaining how taxes on products deemed harmful do not necessarily have the desired effects

"Sin taxes," as they are known, are taxes that are levied on a certain number of products that governments consider harmful like alcohol, tobacco, gambling and certain foods that are high in sugar or fat. In 2012, the average Canadian family paid 5.3% of its total contributions to government in the form of taxes on alcohol, tobacco, entertainment and other excise taxes.

Economic Note offering an overview of the Bitcoin phenomenon and the issues that it raises

Bitcoin digital currency has attracted the regular attention of the financial press for the past several months. Its price fluctuates enormously, influenced by new innovative developments but also by positive or negative decisions by governments and central banks concerning its use. Is the Bitcoin system here to stay and become an integral part of our economic lives? Whatever the outcome of this particular experiment, the innovations made possible by new information technology have the potential to revolutionize monetary and financial matters.

Economic Note describing the impact of staffing services on the flexibility of the labour market

Many workers, particularly the young and immigrants, have a hard time finding a job, especially a full-time job. At the same time, many companies in various sectors struggle to fill certain positions. This seemingly paradoxical situation stems from the difficulty of achieving a perfect match between job seekers and available jobs. What is called the flexibility of the labour market represents an excellent solution to this problem, for both employees and employers.

Economic Note on the necessary balance between the protection of privacy on the Internet and the maintenance of a climate favourable to investment, innovation and job creation

With the explosive growth of the Internet and Canadians' expanding use of it, questions about privacy protection are increasingly taking centre stage in public debates. It is essential, though, to distinguish between the protection we might hope for from the organs of government and the regulations that apply to private companies with which we transact freely for products and services of our choosing. Even if protecting personal information is an issue in both cases, the dynamic is not the same. It is the latter subject that concerns us in this Economic Note.

Canada's high airfares
Interview with Michel Kelly-Gagnon, President and CEO of the MEI, broadcast on March 27 on the Business News Network.

Anglophone philanthropy is an example for Quebec
Op-ed by Michel Kelly-Gagnon, President and CEO of the MEI, published in The Gazette on April 14.

As part of the MEI's health care research program, our Vice President, Jasmin Guénette, met with patients and health care professionals in order to better understand the positive role played by private medical clinics in Quebec. This short documentary shows that private clinics are responding to a real need and are part of the solution to insure that services are being offered within reasonable time to the population.
