Your Government

It's the economy, stupid!
– Bill Clinton

On some level or another, we all engage with the economics of our government, whether we like it or not – via paying taxes, using public services, or complying with regulation in our businesses and purchases.  We expect governments to provide a stable system, good wages, and enough jobs to go round. But at the same time, a lot of people feel really strongly that governments should stay out of the economy and let the market do its work. Is there a right answer?
