Connecting with Canadians


Rethinking Government

by Judith Maxwell

February 1994, "Rethinking Government", in the Dewar Series: Perspectives on Public Management, Ottawa, Canadian Centre for Management Development

Fiscal deficits and social deficits go hand in hand. Issues involving rethinking the contract between the citizen and the state are addressed. Maxwell poses two questions: What services should governments finance in the 1990s and beyond? and How can they do a better job of financing and delivering those services?
