The Economy: From Farms to Cyberworld


In stock


“We have within fifty years not only one, but several technological revolutions which have changed our way of life even more drastically than do changes in government.” — Arthur Lower, Canadian historian, 1955. It has been over 100 years since Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier predicted that the 20th century would belong to Canada. The primary source documents in this book demonstrate how the Canadian economy was influenced by the dramatic changes brought about by periodic clusters of innovations, and show how Canada has evolved from an agriculture-based society to a knowledge-based, hi-tech economy.
