Mixing Business With Government

The Opinion page article "The Business of the President Is Not Business," May 7, decries both a third-party candidacy, and a businessman's audacity to run for the presidency. Does the author think that any businessman, even the most inept, could run this country into debt of more than $4 trillion? And as for a third party, since the two who are now in power are at loggerheads, a third party is badly needed.

The governments of both Japan and Germany are geared to intertwining government and business as the most important goal of their countries. This is the century of economics and we must either understand this and join in, or be left out. Ralph E. Ward, Aguanga, Calif.
