TORONTO, April 27 /CNW/ - Three in four Canadians would rather have an
extra $10,000 than the equivalent value in vacation time, while only
11 per cent believe they have the funds to retire right now. Other interesting
stats about Canadians and their money can be found in the May edition of
Report on Business magazine, which explores the topic of money through a
variety of angles. The cover story profiles Calvin Ayre, Canada's answer to
Hugh Hefner. Timothy Taylor presents the complicated, provocative and
self-indulgent lifestyle of Ayre, a Saskatchewan-born online gambling tycoon
and former Forbes issue cover boy.
What follows is a look at money through a multitude of lenses, including
a candid interview with Canada's most notorious counterfeiter-turned-day
trader, an analysis of what differentiates the tightwad from the merely
frugal, and the hot topic of brain research that's turning traditional
economics on its head. Money is also the fuel of the debt and cash transfer
industries, the inspiration for the art of haggling, and much more.

Plough Shares - You can now realize your dream of owning a chunk of
Saskatchewan. With prices for pockets of top-quality farmland soaring up to
20 per cent in the past year, retail investors are starting to see a wealth of
opportunities in Canada's seventh largest province. Reasonable prices,
Alberta's booming economy and ethanol subsidies are just a few reasons why
resident columnist Fabrice Taylor believes buying a piece of Saskatchewan
isn't such a bad idea.
A New Gold Standard - Eric Reguly looks at "the more you know, the less
gold glows" activist campaign that's driving the effort to infiltrate the gold
chain, from mine to retailer to consumer. But why won't the "No Dirty Gold"
campaign to certify "clean" mines work? Because the industry itself likes it.
