Herb Emery On Why It’s “Sunrise” Not “Sunset” On N.B.’s Manufacturing Industries

The UNB economics professor accepted his job to come here from Alberta just as MacLean’s was publishing its much-loathed article, “Can anything save New Brunswick?”, about whether the province’s economy was in permanent decline. On this week’s episode, Herb tells host Mark Leger he arrived here to find that all was not lost. We just need to understand that the foundations of our manufacturing economy are strong and that traditional businesses need to be appreciated and nurtured, not cast off as “sunset” industries dominated by big players unfairly labelled as “monopolies.”
