Joel Miller talked about his book Size Matters: How Big Government Puts the Squeeze on America’s Families, Finances, and Freedom (And Limits the Pursuit of Happiness), published by Nelson Current. The book gives data on how the federal government grows each year as taxes rise and regulations accumulate while the quality of life suffers. The author warned of big government’s measurable negative impact on the lives of ordinary Americans, saying that excessive government reduces family income, drives up the cost of housing and health care, hurts employment, and stifles vital marketplace creativity and innovation. He was joined by journalist Jonathan Rauchin for a discussion moderated by Stephen Slivinski. They responded to questions and comments from members of the audience.
Jonathan Rauch is the author of Government’s End: Why Washington Stopped Working, published by PublicAffairs. close
