ABSTRACT
The article comments on the economic and political situation in the U.S. and the performance of U.S. President Bill Clinton as of July 1993. Economist Herbert Stein allegedly suggested to his followers to approve the budget reconciliation bill proposed by Clinton. Stein reasoned that voters in the U.S. think that, in order to reduce the budget deficit, a corporate effort is needed, and that they are the ones who elected the President. Meanwhile, another economist, Stephen Moore, has a different perspective on the issue. He is assuming that, when asked to choose, the Democrats would choose the Clinton presidency rather than the welfare of the U.S. economy.
