Issue 39:

In recent months, the loudest political voices in Europe and the United States have been those of populists, both left and right. In Inroads 39, Patrick Webber analyzes the growth of “parochial populism” and its challenge to the cosmopolitan consensus that had prevailed since the end of the Cold War. Against the background of the “Brexit” referendum, Eric Shaw looks at the destabilizing impact of the issue of immigration in Britain. Two other articles offer authoritative, thoroughly researched but accessible analyses of important issues: Josh Gordon examines the role of foreign and especially Chinese investment in inflating Vancouver’s housing bubble, and John Graham proposes a strategy to allow First Nations to benefit from the opportunities presented by major natural resource projects.
