Ecomonics – Private Sector or Public Sector

The difference between the ethics from private sector employment and public sector employment are vast. While researching information in this regard, factors took me in an additional direction. We therefore have two important items to address in this article. This Has to do with Health Care especially in light of the “Affordable Health Care Art.” The second took me to the beginning of the 20th Century for a solid look at available data regarding the individuals our Presidents’ had as advisors and what their histories were. Needless to say I was intrigues and then astounded by the information discovered. They saying is true . . . . “Those who do not LEARN from HISTORY are destined to repeat it.”

II.  POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE ASPECTS  OF PRESIDENTIAL ADVISORS

The percentage of each past president’s cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet.  You know what the private business sector is; a real-life business, not a government job. Here are the percentages.

44. Obama                                  8%

This helps to explain the incompetence of this administration: Only 8% of them have ever worked in private business!

That’s right! Only eight percent—the least, by far, of the last 19 presidents! And these people are trying to tell our big corporations how to run their business?

How can the president of a major nation and society, the one with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business when he’s never worked for one? Or about jobs when he has never really had one? And when it’s the same for 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers? They’ve spent most of their time in academia, government and/or non-profit jobs or as “community organizers.”

They should have been in an employment line.
