Why governments overspend


There are many factors in governments overspending. And I will only focus on a couple of the bigger issues. And I will focus on the US government.

One, they can.

Two, they are buying votes.

Third, they sometimes think massive debt is doing their banking friends a favor.

Fourth, they don’t have to pay the debt.

Fifth, they are dishonest.

Sixth, they are performing work that governments should not do. Commerce? Since when is the government a business? Businesses make a profit, not a loss. Governments are ALWAYS loss generators, they are NOT INVESTORS.

Can you think of more reasons?

    So very true that the government buys votes. They buy the votes of producers, then subsidize their industries, which causes them to spend even more. Thanks for sharing!
