The Canadian Century discusses the fiscal reforms Canada
adopted in the 1900s, causing the government to shrink by more
than 10 percentage points of GDP. This left the other countries,
including the US. The Canadian Century has achieved a high
profile in both Canada and the US, and was most recently
celebrated in the Wall Street Journal.
