Best known for his research on international trade and finance and monetary policy, Harry G. Johnson was one of the Canada's most respected economists. He was also a prolific and influential public intellectual. A sharp and popular polemicist, he wrote on a wide range of subjects, from advertising to affluence to foreign investment, and was published in Punch and The Spectator as well as all the leading economic journals. The Canadian Quandary is a collection of "unbuttoned" pieces written in Johnson's witty and acerbic style between 1958 and 1963. Dealing with Canadian policy on trade and foreign policy, the volume includes Johnson's classic dismemberment of the Canadian nationalist movement. Though Trudeau's Foreign Investment Review Agency and National Energy Policy have long since been dismantled, economic nationalism persists and it is a testament to both the lucidity of Johnson's mind and the vigour and clarity of his writing that many of his opinions on this debate are still fresh, interesting, and relevant.
Harry G. Johnson, who died in 1977, was an economist, polemicist, and the author and editor of fifty-two books, including Money, Trade and Economic Growth and The Monetary Approach to the Balance of Payments.<br><br>William Watson teaches economics at McGill
