Why Washington Only Cut $38 Billion from Federal Spending

In the following, insightful, new video, Independent Institute Research Fellow Benjamin Powell reveals “Why Washington only cut $38 billion” recently from federal spending because as public choice economics shows, special interests prevail over the average citizen by utilizing the political process to redistribute wealth and power from the many to the few (and costs and liability from the few to the many), so long as understanding of this predatory process remains little known.

Fortunately, the general public is increasingly becoming aware of the reality of such abusive political power in the new grassroots movement against Washington’s profligacy.
