Do you believe in that removing regulations and cutting taxes for the "creators of jobs" and businesses help in acheiving job growth?

There is a lot of discussion floating around that doing so would equal more jobs but to see a example of it is lacking in those discussions.

Nothing is as general and broad-sweeping as this. That is part of the problem in politics- politically it pays to use such broad rhetoric, but in reality those broad actions don't have the same effect from market to market or through time.

Personally I am pretty fiscally conservative- generally I do not support excessive regulation and I much prefer tax to regulation, although I would prefer low amounts of both. These are all for economic reasons. I do believe in a certain level of monetary stimulus though- but more to stabilize expectations than anything else.
