    “Government will provide financial support to Bermudians who wish to break from their dependence on gangs to return to school to learn a trade or achieve their GED.” ?*&% Really? !@!

    Some lofty and laudable aspirations (expand the opportunities to boost community-based economic empowerment, explore the best means by which to expand banking options available to Bermudians) I will follow with interest.

    Unfortunately, also some “pie in the sky”. Price controls do not work. If government seeks to limit the prices that can be charged for house rentals, properties will go empty if a reasonable return on the cost of maintaining the property cannot be achieved. If he retail price of batteries (for example) is limited to a price where shops are not making a profit selling them, the shops will not sell batteries and will instead sell something else with that shelf space.

    I do hope that the consultation with the wider community is effective.
