Modest proposals from Think New Mexico

-A A +A
By Harold Morgon

Some Republicans in the Legislature plan to introduce a constitutional amendment that would ban marriage between two people of the same sex, according to a credible recent rumor. Such action would suck the energy from the 2014 legislative session, make for continued inattention to our quality of life and continue Republican business as usual.
Fortunately, with regard to the economy, someone is thinking about something comprehensive, though modest. That is Think New Mexico (thinknewmexico.org), the “results oriented think tank,” with credibility from substantive proposals reasonably presented. TNM’s new report is “Addressing New Mexico’s Jobs Crisis.”
Fred Nathan, TNM founder and executive director, and I view the world somewhat differently. We do have good debates. For sure, I’m glad TNM is doing what it does.
The interim Jobs Council of the Legislature is the only other outfit I know comprehensively looking at the economy. In the council’s case it involves a semi-baffling bottom-up building of the desired number of economic base jobs.
