Would cutting taxes and regulation create jobs?

Jun 2012
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.
