EXAM QUESTION: On emergencies
Since it’s exam season, NOT PC will begin a short series of exam questions for readers. Here’s your first:
“The truth is governments are useless in emergencies,” says Robert Wenzel.” “The ‘leaders’ are posers. Christie, Bloomberg, Cuomo et al. They only make matters worse, e.g., enforcement of anti-gouging laws, rationing and interference in privately written property damage insurance contracts. These characters would have fit in nicely under Khrushchev. He looked ready for emergencies also.”
Discuss, with specific application to Christchurch.
This question is worth twelve marks.
