I forgot who I got this from but somewhere I read that the way to look at government and GDP is that if you give a dollar to an entrepeneur it results in $1.05 of economic activity and if you give that same dollar to a government bureaucrat that results in $.60 of economic activity.

I am sure if varies between programs but the basic notion is that the more capital (percentage wise) you funnel into government, the lower the GDP.

There is a perfect storm decimating the American economy. The Obama administration with its rules ,regulations, high taxes and bizarre war on carbon energy sources is strangulating the productive capitalism that generates the wealth and jobs that create American prosperity.That wealth also makes social justice possible. Also the financial gurus with their printing, borrowing, and a myriad of silly financial gimmicks are squandering huge amounts of capital, creating unsustainable debt and are impoverishing future generations. Bernacke and Geithner will be severely judged by history as the most catastrophic policy makers ever to hold high public office.
