It occurred to me today that this election is largely about measurable outcomes.
We’re being asked who will ‘keep inflation low’ or ‘keep interest rates low’. ‘Making housing affordable’ gets kicked around a bit.
But while there are measurable outcomes, there is no way to predict those outcomes.
Makes me wonder.
I also wonder why everything is about outcomes and nothing is about ideals. Both major parties are for “the fair go,” whatever that means.
But what do they stand for beyond that? I have no idea in either case.
