Stanton Should be Fixing City Hall, not the economy

March 27, 2014

Robert Robb hit the nail on the head in his March 26 Arizona Republic column when he suggested that Mayor Stanton needs to focus on fixing his own administration, not the economy. It is very glamorous for Stanton to be making trips to Mexico to seek trade deals but Robb makes a very important observation when he notes that ALL voluntary exchanges increase wealth, not just ones involving trade with foreign entities. This is a point that even well educated people fail to appreciate. Therefore, we need to fix the problems in our own house.

The voluntary exchanges Robb advocates occur most frequently under conditions of low taxes, minimal government regulations, and sound fiscal policy. Mayor Stanton is failing on these fundamental issues by refusing to solve the Phoenix budget crisis and failing to solve the huge pension burden that will crush future generations of Phoenix taxpayers. Let’s look in the mirror and fix things at home first.
