Would have saved us $700m (update to 2 billion)
And while I'm on the subject of the gummit summit, what the heck is a workstream.
Apparently Joan is on the job and "Masterminding a new way to save jobs".
The problem is that this is tackling the problem from the left (wrong) end.
You get the feeling the jobs that Joan would save are ones that shouldn't have been created in the first place.
Here is a better headline
"Masterminding a new way to create real jobs"
And here is my mastermind ideastream.
Let our small businesses be a cashstream rather than a taxstream for thousands of gummit servicestreams and welfarestreams. Send them downstream, preferably without a paddle.
Futility of existence
