Government Can In Fact Work When You Don't Put People in Charge Who Think It Won't

Great article on Slate about how FDR's policies are still bailing us out of trouble.

But as the nation once again confronts a systemic failure in housing and housing-related credit, the Bush administration is going back to the future, using New Deal-era agencies as the cornerstone of its response.

The moral is, of course, put people who believe in government in charge of government instead of people who don't. And if you put people who don't believe in government in charge, don't be surprised when they turn out to be right.
