An Interesting Thought......,

Several financial sites today commented on an editorial page piece in today's Wall Street Journal. The writer suggested that Ayn Rand be named the next Secretary of the Treasury. Now this of course will not happen for a number of reasons, including the fact that Ms Rand is no longer with us.

But, to illustrate the point of why philosophically it might work, he quoted from the final pages of Atlas Shrugged.

"John Galt, you've been appointed as our economic overseer, how will you solve our problems?"
"Eliminate the Income Tax."
"But how will we pay our government workers?"
"Fire them!"
.............................

You know, that might just be a whole lot better stimulus package then what we have done and are contemplating doing........
