Chris proposes that The Way Ahead might be a more comfortable read for academics and political-types, as the writing style could be off-putting for the general public. Still, his main criticism is that the book outlines problems and proposes no solutions – an example of the productivity problem the text itself highlights.
Here's an excerpt from his review:
However hard I looked, I found Canada’s productivity challenge is no
different than for any other country, insofar as this book is
concerned. What we must do is what any country must do to keep abreast
internationally and it appears that we are doing ok. Even where the
author claims there is a problem, it seems to evaporate.
