why "only" was used here?
why "only" underlined in the sentence below was used here?
Is it an emphasis or something?
Thanks in advance.
Since one of the purposes of having a federal government is to have someone to blame when things go wrong, it seems only fair that we look at methods the federal government can use to try to pull the economy out of a recession.
Re: why "only" was used here?
Good question... It suggests (at least to me) that this is "the least we can do".
