“There is no situation so bad that panicky politicians can’t make worse.” – Professor Michael Munger, Duke University
This quote from Professor Michael Munger is the stark reality we are faced with this morning as panicked politicians play a political face saving game to prop up failing banks. The decisions that congress makes today on a bailout of Wall Street, if any, will affect our lives for generations to come. Never forget that today’s debt is tomorrows tax increase.
Keep this in mind as you read this weeks winners in what will no doubt go down in history and be reviewed by our children’s children in a classroom of the future as a lesson in greed and corruption in the quest for political power and financial wealth. God help us all.
