Where there are some elements of governing that can utilize some aspects of business models, governing is no where near the same as owning and running a business. It is much, much more and extends way beyond fiscal matters. Frankly, I believe the old cliche' that "Government should be run like a business" has been to long interpeted and accepted by to many of us that Government is merely a business proposition. If so, then what business should the Government model itself after...Oil...McDonalds..Brokerage and Banking...Google? And of these...which affords rights to all, builds roads, bridges, puts out fires, and allows their employees to replace ownership of the Company when they are not satisfied with how its being run? There are some governing systems that do run exactly like a business that we could consider. Say hello China, if your interested.
