Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta _ tHI LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, februoiy II, Publishing book on reasons lor move IdfflftSf i Economist says Canada should try to buy itself back from U.S. mml should establish Crown Strikes should also be out- ployed nun buy. TORONTO (CP) A prominent Canadian economist says in a new book due to be published in March that trv to buy itself back from the United States. H. Pope, an instructor in economics at Ryerson Polytech-nical Institute here, says the federal government should provide low-cost loans to Canadian business in order to stimulate Canadian-owned industrial growth. Such loans, with interest rates at about two or three per cent, would allow Canadian companies to operate on a lower profit margin. U.S. firms operating in Canada would be ineligible for and with declining profits the incentive for foreign investment would be lost. "This resultant sizable reduction in the profits of American subsidiaries should help considerably in reducing the present billion net drain of interest and dividends on Canadian current Mr. Pope writes in The Elephant and the Mouse. He says present federal tariffs aimed at protecting Canadian industry from foreign imports are in fact protecting U.S.-con-trolled industries operating in Canada and therefore should sharply reduced or removed. "Most American subsidiaries in Canada operate under monopolistic conditions and are able to set their prices at close to the American prices plus the Canadian which of don't have to pty." The reduction or complete removal of such tariffs would allow competition from Japanese and European exporters. Mr. Pope also suggests that if reduced tariffs did not lower profits, then the federal should establish Crown corporations to compete with U.S. firms operating in Canada under monopolistic conditions. He advocates the banning of strikes in key areas such as communications, transportation and the medical should also be outlawed in industries such as steel and construction with the federal government ensuring workers they would not suffer any loss in real wages or other benefits. He says the federal government's program for fighting in-flaton was that people out of work could not afford to buy things, therefore the demand for goods would drop. With goods in less demand prices would soon begin to fall and inflation would be ended.
