Edward Lazear, formerly President George W. Bush’s Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors, wrote an excellent piece in Thursday’s Wall Street Journal. Let us remember that while life with no government would surely be barbaric and intolerable, life with excessive government becomes just as pernicious. That fact remains true whether ‘too much government’ takes the form of socialism, communism or feudalism. We should cast a doubtful and wary eye when told the government can solve all our problems, and that to do so the government needs all of our money.
