Description

Aboriginal, Northern, and Community Economic Development: Papers and Perspectives is a collection of 12 papers and essays written by professor of economics at the University of Manitoba, John Loxley, from the 1980s to 2007. Interspersed throughout the book are the author's retrospective comments about the early papers thereby bringing the reader up to present-day understandings and the current literature for each paper. He looks specifically at economic development in Winnipeg and the province of Manitoba, the effectiveness of casinos as an economic development strategy, financing economic development, the Aboriginal concept of stewardship, strategies advocated by Aboriginal people, and why Aboriginal businesses fail and how agencies contribute. The final chapter examines the challenges and opportunities regarding Aboriginal business and economic development.
