    Fiscal policy = social policy in importance. If you are lacking in either one, society will fall apart.

    For the second question, I'd say both economy and culture are important but I'd say of the two economy is more important.

    Most important for what? Neither 'top down' policies are required for humans to be human.

    Fiscal policy. Unless the economy's under control, people cannot focus on the more leisurely activities that define a culture.

    It's like that pyramid of needs....self-actualization/social is built upon the assumption that security/physical needs are met.

    Fiscal. If people are unemployed, don't have money, are losing their house, you can forget about social mores until order is restored.

    If people are unemployed, don't have money and losing their house, it is their personal problem, not mine.

    I've been thinking about this a lot lately, the two are interwined a great deal, economy and culture, the one can not exist without the other despite lots of good observations about some sorts of culture having an operating economy as a prerequisite.

    If you're bereft of some sort of culture then I think people wont work, they'll very possibly kill themselves, slowly or quickly, and being devoid of some sort of cultural norms is the greater poverty than material poverty (not that that is a recommendation for material poverty by any stretch).

    I was thinking about this after a friend spoke to me about being both socially and fiscally conservative and another spoke to me about being fiscally conservative but socially liberal, these conversations didnt happen at the same time but its an interesting distinction which until shortly before I started visiting this forum I didnt make but one which I find Canadians and Americans do make.

    Its funny too because despite the major importance it once had culture doesnt register in the same way with the left as it once did, it may in the sort of liberal arts, theatre, performance art, that kind of thing but not in a major normative way, which I suspect was what Mao thought about when he talked about cultural revolution. Looking at the political differences I've seen on this forum and elsewhere when real conflict exists rather than a relative consensus it usually is a cultural issue, although while the right seems to be deliberately engaging in a cultural struggle the left wing is doing so in a sort of unconscious fashion.

    I'm wondering about the connects between fiscal and cultural issues too, I'm not sure that reducing or removing benefits will motivate people to work for instance.
