Update On Spain's Anarchy

I posted a while back about Spain's loss of government. Their most recent election ended up creating a political deadlock with neither party having enough numbers to "get things done". It seems that's good for them, according to Forbes magazine that reports Spain's economy growing and unemployment dropping:

" Spain has not really had a government for the past 10 months and yet it is expected to be one of the fastest-growing eurozone economies this year. And as a result the unemployment rate has just fallen to 18.9%. So much for the necessity of activist management of the economy"

I've said and written before that political gridlock is generally good. We're often better off if government doesn't get things done

"We're often better off it government doesn't get things done." reminds me of a U. Utah Phillips story about deciding to run for President. He said that his platform would be to "hang out, shoot pool, scratch my ass, and not do a damn thing, because when the President does things we're all in trouble."

He also said that working for the Republican Party is like talking to your refrigerator--the light goes on, the light goes off."

Because getting "things" done accomplishes nothing tangible but pleasing special interests.
