In a few short day we will be voting in a President, a leader. When that leader is in office they will enact policies which can make or break our country. Policies which will affect our economic growth or demise. And it is all in our hands. Essentially we are ultimately responsible for what our children and grandchildren will inherit.
Collapse or Growth
In the book Collapse by Jarred Diamond there was a statement which has stuck with me. It said something about most democracies will only last long enough to figure out they can vote there government into giving more money and pay less taxes. therefore bankrupting the government into extinction.
According to Henry Hazlitt in his book ECONOMICS IN ONE LESSON he stats: “The art of economics consists in looking not merely at the immediate but at the longer effects of any act or policy; it consists in tracing the consequences of that policy not merely for one group but for all groups.”
Issues Affecting Us All
the ripple effect of a stone thrown in to a lake can be seen a great distance from it’s point of entry yet it can be measured even at the edge of the lake. Each life or lack of a life affects another for the good or the bad. Hitler deemed the lives of humans unnecessary and his actions are considered deplorable.
Who’s money should the government use to run the country? there is prominent business men/women who feel the sting of the government. A growing business is taxed heavily making it heard to grow and employ more and more people. Thus making the economy suffer. Remember the rich often donate hundreds of thousand to non profit organizations
Of course the issues I listed are not the only ones we face which will affect our economy. Chose carefully.
