Yes, we can agree on that BigDL. That's well stated.

My point to SINC as to the point you trying to make now, governments don't make the economy. Government are subject, like everyone/everything else, to what is happening at any given point in time around them in this old world.

Government can take public policy measures for a limited portion of the world, the portion of their mandated jurisdiction, their actions are always limited.

No argument there at all, but they sure as hell can hurt the economy which is exactly what the accidental NDP government of Alberta is doing by raising royalties, raising taxes and raising the minimum wage by 50% in a depressed Alberta economy with thousands of jobs disappearing daily.

The NDP's goal is to create misery so that it can sell its prime product: government support programs.

EDIT: Thought I was in the Canadian Political Thread. Disregard my post on the distinction between the PCs and the Conservatives.

They seek power to bring prosperity? You've got to be joking.

The NDP doesn't want be fed by anyone other than the taxpayer. Do you think they would shed a tear if the oil industry collapsed? They sit on taxpayer backs like bloated monkeys, while they move money from here to there, and there to here, all the while consuming great gobs of it themselves.
