Take the A&W Pledge for Better Government

Last week, I appeared on CNBC with Rick Santelli, where I talked about the A&W Pledge (to bring back sanity in government) and the outlook for the markets. Check it out here.

Every year I teach my students the sound principles of A&W, two concepts vital to a strong and effective government. I’ve also given a lecture or two to legislatures on the A&W principles and have encouraged them to take the A&W Pledge.

Most importantly, the A&W Pledge can bring Republicans and Democrats together to forge a new policy that most reasonable people can agree upon — regarding health care, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps and a host of other welfare concerns.

What Does A & W Stand For?

A stands for Accountability — the conviction that the “user pays” to keep costs down and improve the quality of all goods and services, including government services. Accountability means competition and choice, along with an educated public.

You can see why Republicans are attracted to the concept of Accountability.
