BaalChatzaf Posted June 3, 2017 Share Posted June 3, 2017 10 hours ago, Wolf DeVoon said: For the record, I just looked at a pile of data, 2/3 of all government offices and structures are military, about 2 billion sq ft around the world. It's the other way around with expenditures, 3/4 of all Federal, state, and local ($7 trillion this year) on social welfare and entitlements. So, Greg has half a point about government spending, although he won't want to admit that every dime of his lifelong income was derived from government, one way or another. Some of his income must have been derived from goods he produced (and sold) or services he has rendered (and for which he was money compensated). In societies with less government or even no government people have traded goods and services among their fellows by exchanging units of trade (aka money).
