Sound economic advice from Cicero from 55 BC

What have we learned in 2,066 years:

“The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.”

–  Cicero   55 BC

So, evidently nothing.
