The Government Cost Calculator Is Recommended at OpenMarket.org

The Government Cost Calculator has been recommended by Lee Doren at OpenMarket.org in “How Much Does Government Spending Cost.”

With never-ending increases in government spending, citizens are often curious how much government actually costs them. In response to this question, The Independent Institute has launched MyGovCost.org, that features the personal government cost calculator to render an account of your individual burden.

One of the best aspects of this calculator is that it will also estimate how much you could earn by privately investing your earnings in the stock market.

The website is directed by economist Dr. Emily Skarbeck, who should be commended for educating the American people on this important issue. Too often we hear talking points about government spending. But, when people really see how government impacts them individually, it may begin to persuade citizens on the need for limited government.
