Our Core Beliefs: Nothing is Simple
We have to admit, we are envious of those who are able to view the world with child-like simplicity. For them, policies are like driving a Cozy Coupe. In reality, the world of public policy is more like flying a jumbo jet with a dizzying dashboard of dials and switches. Problems are not solved by pressing a big red button, but rather by a combination of buttons, dials, levers and commands. The way things are communicated can be as important as the communicated information itself. We will be seeking context. We will be embracing complexity. We will fall back on the laws and truths. For economics, that involve the price curve and that the source of local government funding is a growing property tax base. For issues of judgement, that’s the Golden Rule and the rule of law.
