Bobby Jindal: A good start, but nothing to worry about
It’s difficult to imagine a more important issue than the state of the country’s economy, but perhaps none more acutely confronted by an incumbent governor than Jindal. His economic strategy – a mix of cutting taxes and spending – may be the greatest economic policy challenge of his tenure.
What’s more, the governor has already begun an embarrassing tour of states that remain in the doldrums. On Friday, Jindal was hit by an email blast sent at midnight from a private firm.

Jindal’s plan for Jindal Industries involves a combination of cutting taxes to stimulate demand and increasing sales tax to boost the state’s economy. In essence, the message is to deliver on his promise to cut taxes, which will ultimately boost revenues.
Bobby Jindal, with a smile, and the former governor of Louisiana (and a Republican from the state’s capital), says: “If we believe we can raise the number of jobs, I think the public will appreciate.” That’s not to say the message will translate into government actions. The message remains: cutting taxes, cutting revenue. And that’s just what Jindal’s economic team is doing.
Jindal’s plan was also endorsed by one of the nation’s leading economists, who described it as the fastest growth-enhancing economic plan in more than half a century.
This week in New York, two of its main speakers, the president of the Council of Economic Advisors, Larry Kudlow, and the chief economist of the World Bank, James Ahearn, offered their views on the governor’s plan. Their criticism was unequivocal.
“Bobby Jindal’s policy is not only more regressive than other governors’ proposals; it’s downright irresponsible,” they wrote.
Jindal’s failure to do anything substantive to address the persistent and persisten바카라t economic prob바카라lems of Louisiana, as opposed to his plan to address any of them, is, in and of itself, an enormous failure of leadership.
He has a chance to begin the process of repairing that failing. To paraphrase the great political economist Milton Friedman, it is not enough t바카라사이트o have good ideas: you must also be able to implement them with substance. So, the governor needs to start with addressing both. But that won’t happen overnigh
