ABSTRACT
The article reports on US economic policy issues. With the beginning of a new year, and with a bitter campaign season behind, let's hope politicians and others who shape government policy finally start to focus on those issues that are truly important and relevant to the economic well-being of the country. The cultural issues, however, are another matter. The pollsters say that a large number of Americans based their vote in 2004 on moral issues or values. That's all very noble, but one might have a difficult time explaining how a particular stand on moral or cultural issues translates into sound economic policy.
