Nowadays, a "public enterprise" means the government bought a leaky pipeline— but public enterprises have a long and successful history in Canada, providing services and public goods that private actors in the market economy could never muster. Journalist and author Linda McQuaig joins Team Advantage to discuss her latest book, The Sport & Prey of Capitalists: How the Rich Are Stealing Canada's Public Wealth. Discover how the Trudeau Liberals' Infrastructure Bank is a giant handout to BlackRock! Unearth the history of Canadian National, Canada's public railway, and its role in shaping radio broadcasts and the CBC! Gasp in shock as you learn that a wildly popular public Postal Office Savings Bank existed in Canada until 1968, when Canada's big private banks lobbied to undermine it! Follow Linda McQuaig on Twitter @LindaMcQuaig and check out her book at lindamcquaig.com.
