    Its 11:20 in my time zone. I have class in 10 hours. I have an english ISU that i am just finishing up, but i also have an economics paper due that i havent started. Fellow TBers, help!!! :help:

    the paper is on the current status of canada's economy. i need to decide what our current state is (recession, recovery, expansion, prosperity or decline) with concerns to unemployment, inflation, interest rates, etc. im not looking for a thesis, jsut any tips and pointers you could give would be mucho helpful :help:

    oh, and no posts telling me i shouldve planned ahead or any of that junk, its too late for that now. Dont want to sound mean, but please, i need help!!!

    what i really need is a basis of comparison. what are some general estimates for stats for times when the economy wasnt doing so hot?

    This is the best advice you could get right now. ;)

    I've got the same problem with procrastination that you do, and in fact I have to move in a few days but instead I'm on TalkBass!

    We'd both best get off the forum and get to work!

    Good luck!

    I am pretty sure all the Canadian TB'ers have jobs. That could be a source of info, ya think?

    The Canadian economy looks fine from where I live. I know some Canadian people, and all of them have plenty of money. So, you could add in your report that foreign impressions of the Canadian economy are they it is flourishing.

    I don't know much about the Canadian inflation rate. The prices seem pretty fair when I shop online. My friend bought some of that liquid for teething babies, and she said the price was awesome. The fact that you guys use the metric system and your dollar is worth a different amount that mine complicates the issue a little bit. :)

    I hope that helps in some way.

  9. The dollar doesn't suck as much as it did a couple of years ago. Alberta is out of debt(I am not saying much more than gets political, with anger). We got the 2010 Olympics(should help our economy out). The beef thing kinda hurt(price increases, etc), but thats almost all better now. Gas prices are going down(I believe they've gone down 15-20 cents the last couple of weeks). So yes, recovery is what I'd say.

    finished, its terrible. but its almost 2, and im tired

    i said we were in depression, probably not true but i made enough of a case for it that i should get the marks

    wish me luck
  11. Good luck indeed. I was gonna say recovery also b/c our dollar is at a record high. But I guess if you concentrate on the beef and softwood issues you might have a case.
