    In the final chapters the work of CIDA is assessed from a comparative international perspective and the editor, Cranford Pratt, reviews the main determinants of Canadian aid policy and explains why there has been such a significant erosion in CIDA's declared objective of helping the world's poor.   John McArthur discusses Canada's foreign aid cuts and argues that Canadian politicians should be held responsible for the country’s multi-partisan failure to lead on international development.

    The Canadian Income Tax Act has complex provisions dealing with the taxation of foreign-source income earned, directly or indirectly, by Canadian taxpayers. Foreign source income will be subject to Canadian tax under one of the following methods depending on the type of income earned and the nature of the investment made to earn the income. Net income is defined as total market income (i.e. gross earnings, self-employment income, capital income), plus the current transfers received, less the taxes and social security contributions paid. This is the income that people have available to buy goods and services, so it is a better measure of material living standards than pre-tax.
