This essay focusses on the economic history and policy of Saskatchewan in the 1940s and 1950s. In the 1930s it was fashionable to take note of the structured differences between regional economies in the Canadian federation. By the 1950s, however, the trend was towards Keynesian macroeconomic theory, which examined issues using a pan-national focus. This essay examines the means by which Saskatchewan theorists, George Britnell, Mabel Tinlin, Kenneth Buckley and Vernon Fowke, addressed this dichotomy, and contributed to Canadian economic thought in the 1950s.
