Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidise it.

Ronald Wilson Reagan (February 6, 1911 – June 5, 2004) was the 40th President of the United States (1981–1989) and the 33rd Governor of California (1967–1975). (Source: Wikipedia)

Not for nothing was he known as The Great Communicator.

This quote so typifies much of what we see still happening today. A phrase which must warm the cockles of what passes for Michael Cullen’s heart.
