The questions of what is wrong with our economy and how to fix it are about to hit center stage. What do the economic “mechanics” who are about to lift the hood and start tinkering on our economic engine really believe? 28 years ago, at least we knew.
“The economic ills we suffer have come upon us over several decades. They will not go away in days, weeks, or months, but they will go away. They will go away because we, as Americans, have the capacity now, as we have had in the past, to do whatever needs to be done to preserve this last and greatest bastion of freedom.
In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem.”
Ronald Reagan January 20, 1981 First Inaugural Address
Boy, it would be nice to hear words like these again.
