Impacts of Trade and Macroeconomic Linkages on Canadian Agriculture

Show Summary Details

Preview

Results indicated that had Canada been more integrated with the world economy, its volume of trade would have been 3% higher than its actual level, and much greater price incentives for agriculture would have occurred.
