Alberta's most insightful political commentator is back with another essential book. Kevin Taft, together with economists Mel McMillan and Junaid Jahangir, follows the money to uncover why Alberta--one of the richest places on earth--still talks poor when it comes to public services.

Do we really spend more than we can afford, more than we can sustain, on health care? On education? Why doesn't Alberta have enough hospital beds? Why have our schools faced teacher layoffs? Why are our city streets potholed, and why are rising numbers of Alberta children living in poverty? Where is all our wealth going? Follow the Money uncovers the truth behind the government's austerity slogans and cutbacks. The hard-hitting evidence of Follow the Money challenges Albertans to rethink the past and remake the future.

Confirms in a clear and concise way, what I have been fearing all along. Our Province has been given away by the people we put in charge of protecting our interests. Excellent resource.

An excellent inquiry into Alberta's political economy. Clearly written and persuasive.
