Job Insecurities (NYT)

The standard of living depends not only on people stopping doing the wrong things, but also on their starting doing the right things.

Any incentive not to start doing right things right away screws up the incentives.

Any system that doesn't work in line with natural human incentives fails.

Any leftist never considers side effects, which are usually the chief ones, to their policy proposals.

Which is why no leftist idea ever works.

Which is why there are conservatives.

As the saying goes : if you're not a liberal at 20, you have no heart. If you're not a conservative at 30, you have no brain.

Preparing for layoffs, whether brought on by a downturn or by the continuing shift to a globalized economy, is the least that lawmakers can do.
