AIMS Director of Research Ben Eisen joins CBC host Harry Forestall to discuss his new study, coauthored with Mark Milke of the Fraser Institute, “Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Equalization Policy Crutch. In the interview with Forestall, Eisen remarks that “The argument that we make is the equalization program creates a disincentive. It’s one reason that it’s easier for governments, in this instance, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, or recipient provinces in general, not to aggressively pursue natural resource development.”
