Government Can’t Create Real Jobs


“Governments have only three ways of paying employees — taxes, borrowing and printing money. Each of those reduces income and wealth among those paying taxes, servicing debts or stuck with shrinking greenbacks. In short, governments can’t “create jobs.” Adding government jobs is never a net addition to employment opportunities, because it means a heavier burden on private employers and employees.”
— Alan Reynolds, Cato Institute
