"NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- The success of Canada, where big money and business interests don't have as much sway over policies as in the U.S., is a good reminder of why economic prospects here are getting grimmer.

In Canada, where a regulated banking system and strong consumer protection laws helped the country weather the globe's worst financial and economic crisis since the Great Depression, a vibrant private sector is hiring again.

Canada's economy is well ahead of the U.S., adding 93,000 jobs in June and that's mostly thanks to credit creation from a healthy banking system and consumers that didn't get hit by subprime mortgages and other types of vampire-like credit instruments devised by Wall Street geniuses. "
