Peter Moreira (b. 1960, Halifax).

"An aging population, ballooning debt, and poor government policies leave Nova Scotia -- and the Maritimes in general -- with a bleak economic future.

This frank assessment is the thesis of backwater, an important examination of Nova Scotia's economic outlook by one if its most experienced business reporters. Author Peter Moreira explains how a demographic crisis means Nova Scotia will need to reshape its economic thinking to attract new workers and sustain economic growth. Most importantly, Moreira makes bold recommendations for solving the province's current problems, from lowering corporate income taxes to furthering co-operation among the Maritimes' provincial governments. Interviews with several leading professionals and politicains from the region, including Shawn Graham (New Brunswick) and Darrell Dexter (Nova Scotia), provide additional insight into the serious challenges ahead.

Far from an attack on the place we call home, Backwater is a wide-ranging and timeley examination of Nova Scotia's economic practices."
