Liberalization of Markets

International aid: How to encourage development in poor countries?

The poverty that is so widespread in developing countries, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, is one of our era’s greatest challenges. A billion people continue to survive on less than a dollar a day and 30,000 children die each day of diseases or malnutrition. Colonialism and slavery clearly left their mark, but how can they be held responsible for the extreme poverty of sub-Saharan Africa when places such as Hong Kong and Singapore prove that it is possible to achieve real economic miracles despite a colonial past?

Vision for a Canada Strong and Free

Throughout the Canada Strong and Free series, we have promoted a vision of Canada that brings the best quality of life, the highest levels of prosperity, and the fullest experiences of democracy to the citizens of this great nation, and a presence on the world stage befitting our potential. We have argued that policies based on freedom and responsibility are not only intrinsically valuable in their own right but have the greatest potential to achieve these goals for Canadians. Here we outline the recommendations that arise from this vision.
