#LazyNigerianYouths: Kris Peter’s ‘A word for the President

In a good economy business competes for people. There is a shortage of people to work for business. Everybody wants to hire you. They’ll train you, whatever it takes. They hire students before they get out of school. You can change jobs if you want to because other companies are always trying to hire you. That’s the way the economy is supposed to be

“… In a good economy business competes for people. There is a shortage of people to work for business. Everybody wants to hire you. They’ll train you, whatever it takes.

…So what you do is you target full employment, because that’s the kind of economy everybody wants to live in. And the right size deficit is whatever deficit corresponds to full employment…” – Warren Mosler.

To achieve anything close to full employment deliberate policies are necessary not just the will of the people to succeed; a system built on fairness should be there to utilize everyone.

The main responsibility of the populace is to ensure a democracy that serves them, and to protect it. The populace for example can promote local production out of patriotism, but wouldn’t know whether it is better to preserve forests for their ecosystem or use it as furniture for their individual economies, whether to eat their processed animal skin or use it for shoes. This is where active leadership comes into play.

When it takes a President six months to appoint a cabinet – that is laziness, when it takes him a year to prepare a padded budget, two years to appoint ambassadors, three years to appoint heads of government agencies with dead people on the list, and forever to present reform bills, that is laziness.

The President’s comment on youth being lazy is a result of his understanding to governance, and the place where he made the comment is a good symbolism of laziness. A forum where the same person that invaded and looted you a century ago still assemble you every year to lecture you on what to do the following year; a forum that takes our wealth to a common basket that does not share with us.
