While liberty-minded individuals understand the concept of why big government is bad for an economy (usually because they are the ones who study economics), it is still very important to relay the facts and statistics whenever possible – as proof for those who believe big government is good for prosperity. This six minute video clip by the Center for Freedom and Prosperity compares countries in the western hemisphere in order to determine which have the highest levels of GDP per capita, per capita gross national income and individual consumption per capita (more disposable income). The highest levels are no doubt in the United States, which has the least amount of government spending compared to the four other countries (for now).
Remember the saying your teachers told you throughout middle school, that knowledge is power? Well it is! So check out the video as well as the Center for Freedom and Prosperity’s website, and share these statistics with your friends!
