No current Talk conversations about this book.
No descriptions found.
"During 1943-45, the Polymer Corporation produced the rubber necessary to keep Canada in the war. Later, as the cornerstone of Canada's "chemical valley" in Sarnia, Ontario, Polymer exported its products all over the world, generating remarkable profits for the Crown and becoming the earliest example of Canadian state capitalism. Profiting the Crown shows how Polymer dexterously achieved a duality of function as a successful public and economic enterprise." "Matthew Bellamy tells the compelling story of Polymer's wartime creation, including C.D. Howe's crucial role in its founding, the company's post-war development, and its ultimate denationalization."--Jacket.
