Government's 'solutions' won't provide a panacea

January 2009
Grand Rapids Business Journal;1/12/2009, Vol. 27 Issue 2, p12
The author comments on the economic stimulus plans of the U.S. government as of January 2009. She says such measures can only sustain communities for a short period of time. She cites that putting a one- to three-year moratorium on taxable events that occur when small business owners try to save the business by surrendering their life insurance policies or personal savings accounts was the best solution that might come from the government. She adds that the government should stay out of the way of business growth in order to address the economic crisis.
