Tlie re.solniion on economic policy attacked the Trudeau government for abdicating re- sponsibility, deliberately creat- ing mass unemployment, aiding the waste of natural resources and backing away from tax re- form. It called for a national eco- nomic plan, based on active in- tervention in Ihe economy by a strong publicly-ifnanced devel- opment corporation and using public, private and co-operative ownership.
