Actually what counts is for government officials to make the right
decisions. In my case that means letting the market work. Contrary to
popular belief, the so-called "Captains of Industry" are just as
concerned about preserving planet earth as the average Joe -- after
all they have children and grandchildren too. I might add that letting
the market work also applies to the media.
