We are here today to talk to you about the policies of our new Michigan CEO, Rick Snyder, and our new Board of Directors, formerly known as the Legislature.
The recent election has placed Michigan’s future completely in the hands of the Dream Team of Michigan’s Mackinaw Center, widely recognized as one of the more extreme right wing “think tanks” in the country.
These folks have been trying to sell the idea that we should “run the government like a business” for many years. We are going to test that approach to government for at least the next two years. We are going to see the effects of government firmly in the hands of freewheeling, free market capitalism.
Capitalism is a very good way to organize some human activities. Running an airline, building automobiles, appliances, furniture or widgets of any kind. Transporting goods across country. Many other activities do well with the economies of scale and efficiencies of capitalism.
Is capitalism a good way to run a government? Our police and fire departments? Our education system? Maintain our roads, bridges, parks and public infrastructure?
