Research for the Commission on Canada's future: Z1-1983/1-31-2E-PDF

a progress report.

At the most general level the focus of the research effort is to examine how the Canadian political economy can better adapt to change. The selection of this broad goal as the desired direction in which the country should move reflects the fundamental belief that the future, no matter how highly developed our predictive powers, will take us partly by surprise. The world we live in was not foretold by our predecessors, and the world of our successors cannot be anticipated in detail by this generation. Therefore, the appropriate policy stance for the unknown element in our future is a flexible capacity to respond.
