Size Matters Redux

The latest installment of Prager University addresses a topical and timely political question by asking "How big is too big?" when it comes to size. Size of the government of course.

In this week’s video, author William Voegeli, Senior Editor of the Claremont Review of Books, poses two questions that every American should think about this election year: 1) How much government is enough government? and 2) Should America’s government be as big (or bigger) than that of France, Germany, or Sweden? Mr. Voegeli shows just how big our government has gotten in the past 70 years, and why the cost and size of Washington, D.C. has us on a crash course for European-style unemployment. The amazing thing? Progressives still say -- and will always say -- the government doesn’t spend enough.
