Wealth & Poverty Review Jeb Bush Quote on Gilder Book

A speech last week by Jeb Bush to the Manhattan Institute was described by Jennifer Rubin in her Washington Post blog as “rhetorically non-ideological but in substance very conservative.”

[Bush] explains why conservative polices (regulation needs to be outcome-based and more practical; lower and both pro-growth and pro-family taxes) work: ‘As George Gilder has eloquently written, on taxes and societal rules, the less the noise, the greater the acceleration of innovation occurs, which is the source of sustained economic growth.’

One hopes that the other prospective presidential candidates also delve into Knowledge and Power to find their themes.
