I agree with many of your arguments Kevin. Where my interest lies is in issues of politics and sovereignty. There is no doubt in the mind of any aware person today that the game changed when China entered the scene in the 80s. They cut up slices of their own sovereign territory and in terms of business said, “Do what you will.” The SEZs are a jewel to the world. They show what is possible, in terms of sovereignty re-classification. I am not suggesting we(Canada) take that direct approach but, in light of the Fort McMurray example it is hard to suggest that we aren’t already. These interests are very high profile and they get catered to by the largest players in business and politics. So, in turning to a re-emergence of small business. In Canada, how should those politicians interested in going after the big contracts move forward? What is the golden ticket in the alliance between government and small business?
Note: These thoughts are scattered but, I think I get to a good point in terms of your advocacy for small business.
