ABSTRACT
This article focuses on some socio-political developments in the U.S. While in Canada, where there is a surplus economy voters immediately want tax relief. But because the Canadian form of government is stiff and firm, and has disciplined, responsible parties, the sound fiscal course is now being followed: debt is being reduced while tax relief waits. The U.S. followed just the opposite course in the 80th Congress. Truman pleaded for debt reduction before inflationary tax cuts. The difference between the US and Canada is not one of temperament but of form of government. Canada has the parliamentary system which insures firm control by the party in power. Washington, by contrast, has a unique system of divided power with a Constitutionally built-in feud between executive and legislators.
