Our present economic mess is no accident. It is a result of the disastrous fiscal policies of George Bush and Chris Shays that have made us debtors to the rest of the world and which took the referee off the field at a moment of financial peril. We will get our economy going again by restoring confidence in our economic infrastructure: our banks, our capital markets, our companies and our consumers. We must craft tax policies and create infrastructure which encourage jobs at home rather than abroad. We must make sure that government prevents the kind of abuses we saw in the sub-prime mortgage business. In the long run, our economy will flourish by creating jobs for all Americans. This will happen when we save and invest more and when we fuel our innovative capacity through stable markets and a superb educational system.
