Further Insights from Pietro Poggi-Corradini

in Government Intervention, Politics

The
People order, spur, nudge, encourage, politicians to go out and play
with the market. The Politicians do. They fiddle, tweak, castrate, pick
wings off, etc….and eventually things go terribly wrong. A catastrophe
ensues. The People get very angry. They shout and tell the Politicians
to fix the mess. "It’s your job to fix this!". The Politicians in turn,
like three-year olds charged to put grandmas set of crystal glasses
back into the cupboard, go busily about their business, hauling
over-sized delicate objects above their heads, struggling to hang on to
several heavy and mis-shaped precious items. This is the world we live
in.
