Macaulian Political Pathology
"a single breaker may recede, but the tide is coming in.."
The duty of the Politician is to prevent and to cure national
problems. Instinct, accident, and experience have taught us that some
interventions can be useful in this endeavor, while others make matters
worse. The Politician must diagnose the nature of the problem, and
after that, define in particular, those interventions which may be
effective and efficient remedies.
