Scope and content

With the establishment of the Institute for Policy Analysis (IPA), Prof. Wilson conducted studies for federal government agencies in such areas as wage and price controls, savings and investments. Many of these studies were published as Working Papers by the Institute and others were published separately by Wilson and his co-authors where applicable. Among the studies in this series are “Wage and Price Behaviour in Canadian Manufacturing: an econometric analysis” for the Anti-Inflation Board (1976-1978) with Frank Reid. This was published by the Institute for Policy Analysis in 1978 and as a separate monograph by the Anti-inflation Board in 1979. Other files relate to the Prices and Income Commission (1970), “Implications of the Carter corporate Reforms for Corporate Savings Behaviour” (IPA Working paper 6803), and “Policy options for high employment without inflation” (with G.V. Jump) (IPA Policy paper no. 9, 1971). These files contain correspondence, notes, manuscripts, data, etc. In addition, series contains notes and data relating to Wilson’s work on diversification in the late 1970s and again in the early 1990s.
