An Unorthodox Idea: Performance Bonuses For Pols?

Many private workplaces offer various incentives to encourage performance, ranging from sales commissions to gain-sharing bonuses to profit-sharing.

What if that were extended to elected representatives, by tying their bonuses to their country's performance in the Human Development Index, Transparency International's Corruption Perceptions Index or the World Competitiveness Report?

If you thought politicians were shortsighted now, then just introduce such a scheme and watch all long-term planning going down the drain...

Excellent idea.

Politicians need more accountability than the ballet box.



Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

Eliminate the professional political class. Strict term limits (only one), and once your term is over you must return to the private sector. That way politicians want to make sure that things are in good shape when they have to go out and make a living again.

Yes, term limits are an excellent idea.

All Western countries have far too many professional pols.

Al Gore and Bob Dole.....hell, their home towns were Washington. Not Nashville or Russell KS.
