"The government should pay for goods and services in wishes and fairy dust."
Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2004 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
We should try not to spend much more than we earn, as people, as businesses, as governments. Note to Leonard: mentions agriculture subsidies!
