Ian Lee is very blunt about what Ottawa should be doing to grow its economy. He wants us to take advantage of the struggling American economy and get companies to move here from the U.S.
"We have the opportunity," says Lee, "to steal some of their businesses."
Lee, the outspoken director of the MBA program at Carleton University's Sprott School of Business, says for the first time ever, Canada is a much more attractive place to do business than the U.S.
"Never in the history of our country have we been ahead of the United States," he says. "The United States has always been richer, more powerful, more aggressive, more dynamic, more successful, more entrepreneurship. And right now they're going off of the cliff.
"Their banking is a mess. Their real estate is a mess. Their tax system is a mess. The place is going bankrupt before your eyes."
Just think, we have a couple more years to watch the fail!
