Pol­i­tics vs. eco­nom­ics

Los Angeles Times - - OPINION -

Re “Stocks climb on Greek deal hope,” Busi­ness, June 24

Greece has come close to de­fault­ing on its debt pay­ment due next week, and its re­cently elected lib­eral gov­ern­ment is re­fus­ing to im­pose the ad­di­tional aus­ter­ity mea­sures that might help.

Un­der the con­ser­va­tive gov­ern­ment of Gov. Sam Brown­back, Kansas sinks deeper and deeper into fi­nan­cial mis­ery, notwith­stand­ing in­creas­ing the sales tax and cut­ting the school year to save ex­penses.

Maybe ap­ply­ing po­lit­i­cal ide­olo­gies to eco­nomic prob­lems isn’t the best way to solve them.
