Presidents and the Economy
In all presidential elections, one of the most important issues is the economy, maybe the most important. Each candidate promises to get the economy going, create jobs and bring renewed prosperity to the United States.
But time and time again, it never seems to happen.
Simple. Presidents do not understand economics, nor do they have economic advisors that understand economics. Each president tries to implement economic policies that have failed in the past and agree with his ideology. How stupid and evil can they be? Stupid for trying the same things that did not work when tried before and evil for trying only those plans that support their ideology.
The other side of the coin is the citizens/voters. They are no better than the presidents. They keep voting for candidates whose ideology they support, even if the candidate is totally incompetent, which is most of them.
For those of you who want to revive the American economy, you are going to have to accept two things: forget your ideology(do not vote the party line) and elect a different type of president.
Why type of president?
A president you will not like, a president that gives you bad news. By giving you bad news, you will know he is telling you the truth. You will not like him, because he will not be charismatic, glib or suave. The only requirement is that he be an intelligent, highly analytical problem solver.
The facts no one wants to read.
