Economic problems could be resolved much easier and faster, even for good, if politics and legislation were not involved at all or were kept aside. These are -- on the other hand - the two major sources that contribute to rising social costs of all kinds. In other words, politics and legislation cannot resolve economic problems in any satisfactory manner; they only compound economic problems and make them much bigger and more complicated.
What really resolves economic problems effectively is the understanding and creation of an optimal interaction of all involved economic factors with those of environmental, technological, raw materials, energy and agricultural for related economic woes.
Therefore, a good politician should always strive to be economically, environmentally and technologically correct--being only politically correct is irrelevant and serves no purpose!
