... A speech Mr. Prentice gave to the Toronto Board of Trade on Thursday was a jaw-dropper. It was the kind of mushy mixed economics that is regurgitated with tedious regularity every decade or two by those who have forgotten, or never understood, the lessons of economic history. Mr. Prentice appears to reject market orientation as unaffordable “ideological purity.”
... Adam Smith would instantly have spotted a market-challenged mercantilist. Unfortunately, Mr. Prentice too has embraced the cause that Smith exploded more than two hundred years ago.
... we should perhaps be relieved that Mr. Prentice is no longer at the Cabinet table.I wonder what's in it for the CIBC.
