    Our corporate and political leaders have about a six month time horizon

    Our 'instant gratification' society has a time horizon which is much shorter then that. In the end I think most politicians are doing nothing more then giving the people what they think the people want.

      the lobbyists demand and pay for.

      I haven't seen anything close to giving the people what they think the people want. The only one's politicians are listening to are the lobbyists, and that includes the White House (big pharma secret meetings, etc).
