Prime Minister Harper promises to bring back the Home Renovation Tax Credit if his Conservatives are
reelected. In 500 words please evaluate whether the move is a sensible policy in light of the purpose, costs
and benefits as well as the effects of the tax expenditure, especially in light of its distributional outcomes.
As the word limit is 500 words, please carefully select the latest relevant and informative sources to
use in your submission. Ideas, rather than geography, are important here so the country of origin
of the source is not the issue here. You are required to use at least six of the latest relevant and
informative sources – two of which must be a relevant and informative peer-reviewed scholarly
journal article – but you can use as many as you like.
Please write the 500 words or less in APA style. To fulfill this requirement, you will only need to
provide APA-styled in-text citations and the bibliography at the end of your submission.
