EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

"Ontario Hydro is a paradox. Omnipresent and omnipotent in the Ontario political and economic Landscape, its nature and identity have been shrouded in ambiguity for ninety years. The Politics of Power provides a fascinating account of Hydro's origins and history up to the 1995 provincial election." "Freeman contends that the common perception of Hydro as the archetypal crown corporation is mistaken, despite its reputation as one of the first and most important examples of large-scale public enterprise in Canada. From the legislation that launched the Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario (HEPC) in 1906 to its formal re-creation as Ontario Hydro in 1973, the utility was simultaneously considered in different quarters to be both a government enterprise and the trustee of a municipal cooperative." "This ambivalence continues to be a central theme in Hydro's history. As Freeman shows, the ownership confusion was only attenuated rather than terminated with the creation of Ontario Hydro, and this has implications for its restructuring and privatization today. While municipal ownership is largely a myth, it has survived so long not only because municipal leaders gave it articulation; it conveniently supported the political objectives of Hydro to bolster corporate autonomy and the government to silence criticism of direct involvement in the economy." "Through meticulous examination of statutory changes and government appointments, and through candid interviews with key government, municipal, and Hydro officials, Freeman gives us a much clearer understanding of this important corporation and its government."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The Politics Of Shared Power
Author: Louis Fisher
Publisher: Texas A&M University Press
Release Date: 1998
Pages: 309
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

As Congress and the president battle out the federal deficit, foreign involvements, health care, and other policies of grave national import, the underlying constitutional issue is always the separation of powers doctrine. In The Politics of Shared Power, a classic text in the field of executive-legislative relations, Louis Fisher explains clearly and perceptively the points at which congressional and presidential interests converge and diverge, the institutional patterns that persist from one administration and one Congress to another, and the partisan dimensions resulting from the two-party system. Fisher also discusses the role of the courts in reviewing cases brought to them by members of Congress, the president, agency heads, and political activists, illustrating how court decisions affect the allocation of federal funds and the development and implementation of public policy. He examines how the president participates as legislator and how Congress intervenes in administrative matters. Separate chapters on the bureaucracy, the independent regulatory commissions, and the budgetary process probe these questions from different angles. The new fourth edition addresses the line item veto and its tortuous history and prospects. A chapter on war powers and foreign affairs studies executive-legislative disputes that affect global relations, including the Iran-Contra affair, the Persian Gulf War in 1991, and American presence in conflicts such as Haiti and Bosnia. An important new discussion focuses on interbranch collisions and gridlock as they have developed since 1992.
