The Financial Pressure is Building to the Exploding Point

on Saturday, 18 March 2017 12:02

Government inefficiency and wasting money is something virtually everyone has come to expect. The increasing push from politicians and political action groups towards a distracted voting public is to expand the role of government to correct the very problems that it itself creates. A solution we no longer have the financial luxury to afford.

Not allowing debate is the antithesis of innovation, and change. Change being something bureaucrats in Governments who tout innovation resist strenuously.
