How would America be better off, and worse, if it were led by appraisers?
The banking industry is very dependent on appraisers, necessary to determine the most currant value of property of all kinds. The banks need those appraisal to determine loans.
When an independent appraiser is hired by a bank to determine the value of (especially) real property, the appraiser usually leans forward, and asks quietly:
"What do you want it to be?"
•Transparency would be VERY IMPORTANT
•Misleading behavior would not be tolerated.
•Responsibility, not privelage, would dictate the behavior of the leaders.
Leaders would compete to display more reasonable behavior than their peers. All sides would be interested in the truth.
Hilary, Donald, and many members of Congress would have lost their license/ certification, long ago.
America is led by appraisers; in a capitalist society correct market valuation of property is essential. And until the value is determined in a thorough and sound appraisal based on data, no one can know what anything is actually worth. Insurance companies will not provide insurance without a professional appraisal.
