Sesamenomics: Bert and Ernie Weigh In on Politics

with No Comments

For those of you who need politics in a more light hearted format. Here are 4 parables of Sesamenomics:

Equal outcomes: Trying to make life fair through federal taxation is like asking Ernie to eat all the extra licorice until they are equal lengths.

Spread the cookies around: Bert, we have a problem.

Free Market: The voluntary free exchange of goods benefits both parties.

Entitlements vs. Charity: What if it isn’t your pie?
