I Said What?
A Collection of Columns, Articles, Blogs, and Speeches.
Marcel G. Latouche
I said What? Is the fourth book by Marcel Latouche. It is a collection of columns, articles, blogs and speeches dealing with policies and politics at different levels of government. All the material in the book is dated and provides an insight into the saying: “Those who ignore history are bound to repeat it”. Latouche’s background in economics and finance allows him to express his thoughts on matters concerning public sector finance and public policy. His style is oratory and his writing is simple and easy to follow. The material covered comprises challenges regarding local, provincial, and national governments in Canada. In addition he identifies the effect of international matters and issues concerning Canada’s largest trade partner and neighbor the United States of America, There is no conclusion in this book. Agree with the author or not, his belief that past is prologue, makes a compelling case to read this book, because much of what is deliberated is about being proactive instead of being reactive.
