The financialization of Canada’s economy is a process that began more than a decade ago.
It’s a process which has taken root in the public sector, and has continued to deepen over the past decade, with the introduction of debt to finance public services, and the creation of new financial products.
It was, of course, the financialization that first brought us into the era of debt-to-GDP ratios, and it’s one that’s continuing to take hold today.
But what’s more, the consequences are far-reaching, as evidenced by recent events.
The growth of debt, debt-based debt, and debt-driven growth over the last several decades has had profound implications for Canada’s long-term economic stability, and for the Canadian economy as a whole.
What’s more is that there is no simple way to solve this problem.
While the political and policy debate over debt-fueled growth has focused on the creation or elimination of the Canadian dollar, the real issues facing the Canadian financial system are far more complex.
How debt-induced growth is impacting the economy In the 1990s, as the global economy began to recover from the Great Recession, Canada experienced a surge in the number of borrowers who were in debt.
In the 2000s, debt had already become a major contributor to the country’s debt.
The average Canadian household was borrowing $6,400 more than it could afford in the summer of 2011, according to Statistics Canada.
That’s when the economic recovery kicked in.
The boom, in turn, created a massive amount of debt for Canadians to borrow.
That debt is now at a staggering $1.6 trillion, and this debt is growing in a way that has not been seen since the financial crisis.
This is a situation where debt is a major cause of the economy, with households borrowing more than they could afford.
In addition to the increased debt, households are increasingly struggling to pay back their debts, which in turn has led to a widening gap between the income of the households and that of the rest of the population.
This has created a financial crisis, as more Canadians are unable to pay their debts and the economy suffers as a result.
According to a 2015 report by the Bank of Canada, Canada’s household debt stood at $1,829 per person in 2013, and $1)2.8 trillion in 2015.
As of July 2017, the average Canadian households debt stood between $8,000 and $10,000, and a staggering 80 per cent of the average household’s net worth was in the form of debt.
By 2020, the gap between debt and the net worth of the median Canadian household will have widened to $19,100, which is a staggering amount of household wealth that is being squandered.
At the same time, Canadians are struggling to meet their credit obligations, with average household debt peaking at $12,900 in 2014.
Debt-driven debt growth and the resulting widening gap in household wealth have led to an economic downturn, with many Canadians struggling to repay their debts as the economy stagnates.
This crisis is particularly severe in the urban regions, where debt-heavy areas of the country such as Vancouver, Toronto, and Ottawa have experienced a massive spike in debt over the years.
In Toronto, a city with a large population of low-income people, average household debts in 2014 stood at almost $10.6 million, while in the inner suburbs of Toronto, average debt levels were as high as $16.4 million, a rate of increase that is not uncommon in cities with high poverty rates.
At a time when Canadians are being asked to repay debt for housing, medical care, and other basic necessities, the situation is even more dire.
In 2010, when the Ontario government launched its debt reduction program, the province had debt levels of $4.3 trillion, compared to an average household income of $18,500.
By 2017, Ontario debt levels had ballooned to $17,300, a $4,500 increase in just seven years.
The gap between household wealth and debt levels in Toronto is a crisis that is far more severe than that of other cities in Canada.
In contrast, the debt levels are much lower in Vancouver and Toronto.
While Toronto has been grappling with a debt crisis for decades, Vancouver is experiencing a debt problem of its own.
In 2008, the population of Vancouver was estimated to be about 4.3 million, making it the third most populous city in Canada, behind only Toronto and Edmonton.
By 2014, the number had dropped to about 1.4% of the total population, while the city was estimated at just over 1.8% of Canada.
The population in Vancouver has not shrunk significantly in the past couple of decades.
However, the trend towards higher debt levels has meant that the cost of servicing debt has skyrocketed, with a rise in interest rates in the last few years.
As a result, interest rates on the outstanding debt have skyrocketed. In
