The Sheaf: Saskatchewan University Students Not Feeling Boom.

Memo to Sask. Premier Brad Wall:

Your predecessor understood that the value that central planning has with respect to responsible management of the economy. In contrast, your blind faith in the magical guiding force of the market isn't going to turn a boom fed by an influx of population taking advantage of construction opportunities and lagging house prices into a diversified prosperity for all, nor will mere "tax cuts" and a nuke-or-bust approach to the energy do much to stem the "brain-drain" that results from university students being forced to leave province to find employment.

Your base may not be capable of acknowledging or grasping this, but I'd be willing to bet that even if you're unwilling to let go of your dog-eared copy of Atlas Shrugged and its comforting litany of strawman antagonists, even you are able to understand the electoral implications of your opponents being free of that particular bit of a priori economic-theory baggage.
