It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong. —Thomas Sowell
In a democracy, a politician has no ownership interest in the state. There is no financial gain for wise policy decisions. Nor financial lose for bad decisions.
A politician’s rewards are immediate – power, prestige, and perquisites.
