As far as the second part goes, Alberta's economy seems to be working ok. Probably the best in the country currently and over the course of my lifetime.

You are making an assumption that adding a pst would mean programs would be properly funded. Having lived in provinces that have a pst, I can assure you that isnt the case.
That's why you make it a dedicated sales tax. For example, L.A. put in a half-cent sales tax specifically to fund transit and infrastructure that's expected to bring in $40 billion over 30 years.
