EnCana Makes the Case for Public Ownership in the Energy Industry

The Parkland Institute has published an Op-Ed on the Royalty Review, the energy industry's response, and the case for public ownership in the energy sector.


Monday, October 08, 2007

by Ricardo Acuña

In the weeks following the release of the recommendations of Alberta's Royalty Review Panel, energy giant EnCana has been one of the loudest opponents of any moves that might increase the direct benefits Albertans receive from their natural resources — going as far as publicly threatening to cancel a billion dollars worth of investment if the panel's recommendations are implemented.

The irony of these threats and the desire to see Albertans get less than full value for their oil and gas will not be lost on those who remember EnCana's history. Read more about EnCana Makes the Case for Public Ownership in the Energy Industry

Book Launch - The Economics of Happiness: Building Genuine Wealth

Description:
Despite increasing economic prosperity over the past 50 years, many conditions of well-being are in decline and rates of happiness are largely unchanged since the 1950s. Why do our measures of economic progress not reflect the values that make us happy: supportive relationships, meaningful work, a healthy environment, and spiritual well-being? Economist Mark Anielski has developed a new and practical economic model called Genuine Wealth that measures the real determinants of well-being and helps to redefine progress.
