The debt tackler: David Cameron

Question: Considering all spheres of endeavor, who would you nominate as Leader of the Year in 2010? Why?

My nominee is British Prime Minister David Cameron. More than any other world leader, he has not only acknowledged the tremendous challenge and necessity of dealing with a huge public debt but also has proposed specific policies to deal with it. Equally impressive, he has dealt sensibly and firmly with the inevitable outcries from subsidized sectors (e.g., higher education) whose entitlements have been reduced. All of this was done as part of a coalition government and the inevitable tensions it entails. It is to be hoped that his counterparts across the world can demonstrate the same courage.
