Econ 101, As Told by the Bush Administration (NOT Sarcasm)
Note the interesting co-operation between sound economics and politics. No matter what, politics comes into play. This is what happens when folks who know nothing about economics insert themselves into a purely economic scenario.
It’s kind of like people, other than your doctor, telling you how to treat your heart condition — people like those employed by insurance companies. That’s stupid, too, and we would NOT dare allow that! (Now that’s sarcasm!)
