Richard J. Maybury who is also Uncle Eric
"Perhaps the two most important questions to be asked about the panic of 1980 are: 1) how much did the politicians learn from their mistakes and 2) how many of these politicians are still in the government today? The answers are, not much and not many.
   The reason for the not much is simple. A politician does not get elected by understanding economics, finance, law, foreign affairs, or the other important subjects about which he makes daily decisions. He gets elected by understanding how to get elected. That's what a politician is—a person who is an expert at winning elections. Expecting politicians to make wise decisions about things they know little about is unrealistic to say the least." —p.50
