"This booklet, `For the Common Good: Canadian Issues', is one of five in the series of position papers commissioned by the Consultation on Faith and the Economy. Each booklet contains the papers prepared for a particular theme. `For the Common Good: Canadian Issues' sets out some major concerns facing all Canadians -- poverty, rural instability, the balance between private and public sector enterprise. In an era of `jobless recovery' economic performance benefits some, yet many are driven to the precipice of despair. How can we build an economy, which values the contributions of all members of Canadian society ?" -- back cover.
