Quote of the Day: Selling ideas

From Bernard Hickey in the Herald:

Floating an idea that you don’t really believe in is never a good idea.

This is a great quote, completely true.

I also think he makes good points discussing Goff’s chat on tax and inflation policy.

Update: Dim Post makes a good point on the “framing” of policies, and how justifications for policies can seem inconsistent.  This is why economics is awesome in my opinion 😀
