How to fix the economy 2012
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Economics!
There's a strong consensus on what must be done:
Clarify fiscal policy and resolve the fiscal cliff — the impending expiration of major government tax cuts and spending programs that threatens to cut GDP by 3 to 5 percentage points.
Stability. Which seems to be impossible in our current political environment.
Not really. The essence of politics is compromise.
Quid pro quo is natural to both Obama and Romney.
Frankly, either of them would be fine, economically.
But that's probably because they both pretty much have the same plan.
What compromise has there been politically in the last dozen years?
All Tea Party and Fox's fault? #BlamePaulRyan?
They certainly have some blame, but there's plenty of blame to go around. :)
