Cooperation Works!

“We just need to focus on what works again… What works in bringing the economy back is cooperation. What works in getting on the news programs and in politics is conflict. Conflict is great for politics, great for news coverage, lousy for economic policy. That’s what the problem is. We gotta go back to a cooperative environment where everybody kicks in a little.”
