In his review of economic reports for the Toronto Region published by the Toronto Region Board of Trade, Dr. Clayton concurs with the Board's focus on the Toronto economic region as a whole and believes the Board is providing a very positive contribution to the debate on how to ensure continued strong economic growth in the region and rising productivity of its labour force. However, he has reservations about whether the long-term forecasts are achievable without a strong regional-level government structure. The article was published in the spring 2014 issue of The Land Economist.
