As religiously grounded moral arguments have become ever more influential factors in the national debate-­particularly reinforced by recent presidential elections and the creation of the faith-­based initiative office in the White House-­journalists' ignorance about theological convictions has often worked to distort the public discourse on important policy issues. Pope John Paul II's pronouncements on stem-­cell research, the constitutional controversies regarding faith-­based initiatives, the emerging participation of Muslims in American life-­issues like these require political journalists in print and broadcast media to cover religious contexts that many admit they are ill-­equipped to understand. Put differently, these news events reflect subtle theological nuances and deep faith commitments that shape the activities of religious believers in the public square. Inasmuch as a faith tradition is an active or significant participant in the public arena, journalists will need to better . . .

Gilles Groulx (1931-­1994), figure marquante du cinéma québécois, était ­hostile à toute forme de compromissions. Du Chat dans le sac (1964) à Au pays de Zom (1982) en passant par 24 heures ou plus (1972), il a produit une œuvre cinématographique d'une grande exigence stylistique et thématique. Le cinéma de Groulx – loin d'apparaître comme un simple phénomène de mode – reste indéniablement d'actualité.

Karl Marx predicted a world in which technical innovation would increasingly devalue and impoverish workers, but other economists thought the opposite, that it would lead to increased wages and living standards--­and the economists were right. Yet in the last three decades, the market economy has been jeopardized by a worrying phenomenon: a rise in wage inequality that has left a substantial portion of the workforce worse off despite the continuing productivity growth enjoyed by the economy. examines why. Studies have firmly established a link between this worrying trend and technical change, in particular the rise of new information technologies. In, Gilles Saint-­Paul provides a synthetic theoretical analysis of the most important mechanisms by which technical progress and innovation affect the distribution of income. He discusses the conditions under which skill-­biased technical change may reduce the wages of the least skilled, and how improvements in information technology . . .

The general assumption that social policy should be utilitarian--­that society should be organized to yield the greatest level of welfare--­leads inexorably to increased government interventions. Historically, however, the science of economics has advocated limits to these interventions for utilitarian reasons and because of the assumption that people know what is best for themselves. But more recently, behavioral economics has focused on biases and inconsistencies in individual behavior. Based on these developments, governments now prescribe the foods we eat, the apartments we rent, and the composition of our financial portfolios. takes on this rise of paternalism and its dangers for individual freedoms, and examines how developments in economics and the social sciences are leading to greater government intrusion in our private lives. Gilles Saint-­Paul posits that the utilitarian foundations of individual freedom promoted by traditional economics are fundamentally flawed. When . . .

Following the severe financial crises of the 1990s, identifying and assessing financial sector vulnerabilities has become a key priority of the international community. The costly disruptions in global markets underscored the need to establish a set of monitorable variables for evaluating strengths and weaknesses in financial institutions and to alert authorities of impending problems. These variables, indicators, of financial system health and stability known collectively as macroprudential indicators, are the subject of this Occasional Paper by the Monetary and Exchange Affairs Department and the Statistics Department. Macroprudential indicators take measures at both the level of aggregated financial institutions and at the macroeconomic level; financial crises often occur when weaknesses are identified in both. The authors provide a breakdown and explanations of these indicators and a review of the theoretical and empirical work done thus far. Work at other international and . . .
