Government Finances in New Brunswick
New Brunswick is an economically small jurisdiction that is vulnerable to unavoidable external shocks. Jurisdictions in this situation can find success by cultivating economic resilience, an ability to absorb and recover from the impact of negative shocks. This paper looks at the past 35 years of the Government of New Brunswick’s finances to determine the extent to which policy choices have contributed to, or detracted from, the economic resilience of the provincial economy.
