Politics is about deviding up the cake, and who should get the biggest slice of the cake.
Economics is about how the make the cake bigger in the private sector.
In the British parliament it seems to be taboo to mention the subject of wealth creation.
I have been following politics for 40 years and I have yet to hear a single word of discussion of wealth creation in the British parliament.
But we are now in a dire economic crisis, and we must change the habits of a lifetime and talk about how and who creates the wealth in Britain.
