This policy proved deeply divisive, and quickly lost its importance as oil prices collapsed in the mids. One of the most controversial sections of the Canada—United States Free Trade Agreement of was a promise that Canada would never charge the United States more for energy than fellow Canadians. Canada is also one of the world's largest suppliers of agricultural products, particularly of wheat and other grains. As with all other developed nations the proportion of the population and GDP devoted to agriculture fell dramatically over the 20th century.
As with other developed nations, the Canadian agriculture industry receives significant government subsidies and supports. However, Canada has been a strong supporter of reducing market influencing subsidies through the World Trade Organization.
Canada and the United States share a common trading relationship. Canada's job market continues to perform well along with the US, reaching a year low in the unemployment rate in December , following 14 consecutive years of employment growth. Canada's importance to the United States is not just a border-state phenomenon: Canada is the leading export market for 35 of 50 U.
It also resolves some long-standing bilateral irritants and liberalizes rules in several areas, including agriculture, services, energy, financial services, investment, and government procurement.

In Canada's was The CIA World Factbook, updated weekly, measures financial liabilities by using gross general government debt, as opposed to net federal debt used by the OECD and the Canadian federal government. Gross general government debt includes both "intragovernmental debt and the debt of public entities at the sub-national level". For example, the CIA measured Canada's public debt as Household debt , the amount of money that all adults in the household owe financial institutions, includes consumer debt and mortgage loans.
In March the International Monetary Fund reported that Canada's high household debt was one of two vulnerable domestic areas in Canada's economy; the second is its overheated housing market. According to Philip Cross of the Fraser Institute , in May , while the Canadian household debt-to-income ratio is similar to that in the US, however lending standards in Canada are tighter than those in the United States to protect against high-risk borrowers taking out unsustainable debt.

December 13, A de novo entrant is a new firm producing in a market and is what comes to mind when thinking about entrepreneurial processes. In such cases, the firm did not produce in any other markets prior to its entry into the market of interest.
Many single-location births or new nonemployer firms fit into this category. However, another important source of entry into markets is existing firms diversifying into new markets Dunne, Roberts, and Samuelson, These existing firms may enter a market by shifting existing assets from one industry to another or by creating a new production facility to service the market.
In these cases, the firm may be established, but it is a new participant in a specific market or sector. What is fundamental here is that, in order to fully measure entry, one must be able to identify not only de novo entrants new firms created for this market , but also the expansion of existing firms participating in a market new to that firm.
Similarly, the exit of a producer from a market may correspond to the death of a firm, or it may simply represent a shift in the mix of production occurring at an ongoing firm. Under this definition, the closure of a plant or store may or may not represent exit from a market. These differences in the types of exit also should be distinguishable in data used to study producer dynamics. In order to measure de novo entrants, one needs reliable and timely information on new firm formation. This information typically comes from administrative sources, such as those underpinning the tax and UI systems.
This dataset preview is momentarily unavailable.
Identifying when existing producers diversify into new markets is in one way more complicated, as it requires longitudinal information on the distribution of economic activity e. These definitions of entry and exit require that the ownership of business units is tracked accurately, that industry and product coding is uniform, that the output is measured consistently and, sometimes, that the location of business units is tracked. Regarding the ownership issues, each business unit must be identified with the firm that owns it at any given point in time, and changes in ownership must be accurately tracked.
Ownership and administrative changes that do not affect the business operation but do change the legal entity must not be mistakenly picked up as an exit of an existing firm and the entry of a new firm. Vale found that an important difference affecting the international comparability of business start-up statistics internationally relates to how countries treat administrative and ownership.
Reactivations and reregistrations of businesses can result in substantial overestimation of business start-ups. Baldwin, Beckstead, and Girard report that business start-up rates are substantially overestimated, both in numbers and employment shares, when one relies simply on tracking firms in a business register. Many new startups are, in fact, unlinked acquisitions. However, ownership changes that affect the number of competitors in a market need to be reflected in the data. A horizontal merger between two competitors results in a reduction in the number of independent business units in the market and thus represents a form of exit but not deactivation of a production unit.
Detailed information on business location may also be vital, depending on the industry or issue under study. Clearly, in such industries as retail and construction—and sometimes even in manufacturing—products markets are local in nature. In order to characterize the entry and exit of firms into these typically narrow geographic markets, detailed information on the location of operations is required.
Alternatively, for some industries, such as consulting and perhaps information technology services, the location of the business unit may be effectively undefined. On balance, however, it is probably useful to think of business location as an important characteristic for helping to link business units to specific markets.
