Thinking About Policy

When in doubt, politicians will usually support policies that are popular, even if those policies are wrong. Political courage is required to support a policy that is right, but unpopular. Let us say that any given policy may be categorized in four ways:

  2. Popular but wrong.
  3. Unpopular but right.
  4. Unpopular and wrong.
