Paul Martin: Keynote Address: Reflections on the Politics of Deficit Reduction

The Right Honorable Paul Martin, Former Prime Minister of Canada, discusses how Canada eliminated the deficit in the 1990s which was the worst of the G7 at the time. In doing so he discusses the timing and the need for governments to place greater emphasis on bringing the country's population onside when tough decisions are required.
