Sample text

This brings us to the eighth and final reflection on the contemporary phase of global capitalism. That is, from a policy environment perspective, governments at all levels and supranational entities have a responsibility to ensure that the constituents of capitalism – and particularly the MNEs which account for such a large proportion of the globe’s innovatory and production capacity, and of the world’s trade in goods and services – play a socially accountable role in furthering their agenda. This is notwithstanding the increasing voice and activism of a multitude of non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and the collective action of individual consumers, investors and workers.

At firm level, data on foreign sales by MNEs reveal that very few of the world’s largest MNEs are ‘global’ in the sense of operating in all three regions of the triad. The vast majority of large MNEs mainly operate in their home-triad market. Canada’s MNEs are no exception – they are virtually indistinguishable from large US MNEs in terms of large intraregional sales. Both sets of large MNEs have about three-quarters of their sales on average as intra-regional (Canadian firms at 74 per cent and US firms at 77 per cent).

My doctoral thesis and related published work was on the sharp collapse and relatively slow recovery of Canada’s economy in the 1930s (Safarian, 1959). While influenced by Keynes, the work was more clearly Schumpeterian. It was decidedly in the field of real business cycles. I am not impressed by the kind of monetarist thinking so dominant about this period. Such thinking explains little about the decade of agricultural drought reflecting policy decisions made many years earlier on settlement and transport, or the huge overinvestment in a number of major growth sectors such as power, railways, newsprint and automobiles.
