Krugman Writes About Georgia
You get the feeling right off the bat that this probably isn’t good. It isn’t. Georgia has had more bank failures than any other State in the nation.
Georgia on My Mind
This is probably as good a place as any other to throw this out. Listen to the news for words to the effect of, “The Inspector General found....” or “Government inspectors revealed today...” I’m hearing more and more of it. I can only hope and pray that the Obama Administration is spreading the word throughout government and industry that we’re going to get serious about code enforcement and regulations.
For far too long, the people in charge of government have been destroying the government. If they couldn’t get rid of the law, they would just subvert it. Funds to hire new inspectors would be cut or withheld. Industry leaders hostile to the agencies that were supposed to regulate them were put in charge of running those agencies. It has cost American citizens their money and even their lives.
