Kari Polanyi Levitt – Biography

n the mid 1960s she was asked by the New Democratic Party of Canada to develop a position paper on the issue of foreign ownership. In this context she analysed the effects of foreign direct investment on the host country, illustrated by the case of Canada. An early version of this work was published in 1968 in the New World Quarterly, a Caribbean journal of political and cultural commentary, as ‘Economic Dependence and Political Disintegration: The Case of Canada’. (see Caribbean connection) Further work based on this manuscript resulted in the publication of Silent Surrender: The Multinational Corporation in Canada in 1970.
