Alberta''s most insightful political commentator is back with
another essential book. Kevin Taft, together with economists Mel
McMillan and Junaid Jahangir, follows the money to uncover why
Alberta-one of the richest places on earth-still talks poor when it
comes to public services.
Do we really spend more than we can afford, more than we can
sustain, on health care? On education? Why doesn''t Alberta have
enough hospital beds? Why have our schools faced teacher layoffs?
Why are our city streets potholed, and why are rising numbers of
Alberta children living in poverty?
Where is all our wealth going?
Follow the Money uncovers the truth behind the
government''s austerity slogans and cutbacks. The hard-hitting
evidence of Follow the Money challenges Albertans to
rethink the past and remake the future.
