An Inside Account of Saskatchewan's Pink GoldBook - 2014
Did Saskatchewan give away the goose that laid the golden egg? When it comes to potash, John Burton claims we did. And he asks, where is the money for the natural resource going now? In Saskatchewan, politics and potash are inextricably intertwined. The province is the world's largest producer of potash and the industry plays a significant role in the provincial economy. With global markets in upheaval, this book questions the ownership of natural resources and asks if average citizens are receiving a fair share of profits. An insider who helped nationalize the industry in the 1970s, John Burton expertly integrates behind-the-scenes accounts of the major players, archival material, and interview sources to produce a book that cuts through the bull to add to our understanding of the world's greatest fertilizer.
