Words of Wisdom

"Higher government spending is matched by lower private spending for consumption and investment... Government borrowing from the public diverts funds from private uses by raising interest rates, making it both more expensive and more difficult for individuals to get mortgages on new homes and for businesses to borrow money."  

 --Economist Milton Friedman
