I don’t know where I am on the political spectrum. I don’t think it’s particularly important. But I know that if I took Robert Worthington’s approach to my business, I would be out of a job. People come to me with problems. I try to help them resolve their problems within the set of rules. They pay me. End of story.
What I think about those rules when I lay my head down at night is quite distinct from how I earn a living.
Whether you’re a lawyer or a real estate agent, a lender or a widget maker, you add value to the world by solving other people’s problems: keeping them out of jail, finding them a home, helping them finance a purchase, or selling them some widgets.
How you conduct your business – how you treat people and honor your commitments – matters.
What you think about whether they take a tax credit, or borrowed from 2003-2006 at Fed subsidized mortgage rates, or have benefited for decades from the mortgage interest rate deduction does not matter.
And if you’re so concerned about an $8,000 tax credit that you’d turn away customers, I think, quite frankly, your priorities are confused. There are some deep injustices in the world, and in this country. An $8,000 giveaway, however stupid or smart a policy that may be, is not one of them.
