CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 19, 2015) - On Monday, June 22, the Fraser Institute will release a new study spotlighting the fiscal policy options available to the newly-elected New Democratic government in Alberta.

Fiscal Policy Lessons for the Alberta NDP from other NDP Governments reviews the fiscal records and economic outcomes of the Saskatchewan and Ontario NDP governments of the early 1990s. The study also debunks the myth that a new government's approach to fiscal policy can accurately be predicted by simply looking at its political label or brand.

A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwired on June 22 at 5:30 a.m. (Mountain).

Study co-author Ben Eisen will be in Calgary on June 22 and available for media interviews.
