Is our government too big? You might think so when you listen to some political speeches. But In fact, we need big government despite its cost, for all those situations where the job is just too big, too messy or unlikely to produce profits.
One prominent example is the current East Coast flooding disaster which is all three of the above. Is Wall Street or a bank going to rush in to help those people whose homes and lives have been destroyed?
Private enterprise has its merits, but so does government. We must not forget that, especially when we’re preparing our ballots.
