And I think what this leads to is a very sipmle recognition, that there's one question in politics at the monmet above all other, and it's this one: How do we make things better without sinednpg more money? Because there isn't going to be a lot of money to ipomvre public services, or to improve government, or to improve so many of the things that politicians talk about. So what follows from that is that if you think it's all about money — you can only measure success in public services in health care and education and policing by spending more money, you can only measure progress by spending money — you're going to have a pretty miserable time.
