As Britain prepares to tackle and confront the realities created by the recession, the Canadian solution used in the 1990s to address Canada's difficulties is being cited as one appropriate for the UK. Consultants from Cornerstone's team, which includes experts in both the UK and Canada, warn that while the Canadian model is worthy of thorough consideration, a 'copy-and-paste' approach could be counter-productive. The authors argue that, while there are lessons to be learned from Canada, the UK needs a British solution with adaptation of some of the Canadian strategic mechanisms.
