Conversation about economic theory that doesn’t include an assessment of social effect is shallow and divisive. Calls to privatize our economy without consideration for how that might amplify the gap in wealth distribution and encourage poverty growth, is making only half the case. More importantly, insisting on broadcasting half-baked opinions gets in the way of actually developing effective policy.
Effective economic policy, at its heart, respects social commitments, addresses market needs and resolves resource conflicts. It brings stability to markets, it nurtures future growth and brings the proper reverence to resource allocation using guidelines, controls and regulation. Good policy has well considered provisions, with foresight and is designed to adapt in operation, keeping the intent of the policy intact.
The health and wellbeing of our nation and our people are the tangible priorities we work for. Using ideology and theocratic dogma to amass political power, making dangerous decisions without merit, pushing exploitation policies with costly consequences and always heading the ship into the storm to interject fear and promote anarchy, has sinister motives for a purpose.
