It's all well and good to know our nation’s monthly job vacancy numbers broken down by province and territory. However, as I argue in my latest Québécois Libre article, "Centrally Planning the Job Market: We Need More Data!" this is not sufficient. We also need to know which specific regions are experiencing labour shortages, and which specific skills are in short supply. If nothing is done to make sure we get this information, the very survival of our central plans may be in jeopardy.
