Snippet: Govoernment ≠ Business

It’s become vogue to say that government should be run like a business, but this is a foolish concept. A nation cannot fire inefficient or ineffective citizens. A nation cannot downsize. A nation can’t count on a bailout. If for no other reason, you should never run a country like it was a business because most businesses are in the habit of failing.

If anything, the one thing that some businesses do well is also the one thing people who claim we should run the government like a business are most loathe to do, which is to explore and try new things.

  1. Most business do fail, so a better statement would be that we should run the country like a super successful business...but once we say that, what's the difference in saying the country should be run like a super successful country?
