Angela Merkel can't do it in Europe. Neither can Jyrki Katainen, Mark Rutte, François Fillon nor David Cameron.
In Asia, Yoshihiko Noda isn't able to either. Julia Gillard can't do it in Australia.
The bottom line is government interference doesn't create employment. You can't create hiring by legislation. You can't regulate prosperity. Government intervention is not the answer, especially when the global market is a crisis create by government debt and spending.
We had a concise but accurate statement in the military: lead, follow or get the hell out of the way.
Governments can't lead us to prosperity. Not democrats, republicans, independents, libertarians or whatever the different parties are called elsewhere.
Governments don't follow - and I think thats upwards of 90% due tot he arrogance of the political ruling class.
Which allows one other option. Get the hell out of the way. Don't try to help. Just remove obstacles and interference and watch what people unencumbered by the shackles of a government "just trying to help" can achieve on their own.
