It’s interesting to hear how much election conversation centers around what the elected will do to “fix” the economy. That line of conversation is seeded by the politicians, watered by their followers, and fertilized by an uninformed (or worse, misinformed) public.
The public buys into politicians the same way they buy into characters on a TV show (maybe not such a bad analogy, as politics seems mostly to be “American Idol” in suits).
Now hear this: politicians will not “fix” the economy. Only entrepreneurs can do that.
The best thing the politicians can do is get out of the way.
If you want Atlas to carry the world for you, don’t keep nipping at his hamstrings. He might decide to shrug.
