RGF Hits USA Today Front Page

In case you missed it — or you were not at our luncheon event with John Stossel yesterday — the Rio Grande Foundation’s Ken Brown appeared on the front page of yesterday’s USA Today discussing the propensity of the federal government to continue to hire and grow even as private employers cut back in a tough economy. While some “economists” view this as a good way to mitigate tough economic times, Brown more accurately points out that the problem is that governments are much slower to react to economic conditions than other actors in the economy.
