Opinion: The artificial life cycle of economic growth | Juneau Empire – Alaskas Capital City Online Newspaper.

A great explanation of the poisonous nature of the administrative state, that once again (as Moniak has done for me in the past) come to the wrong conclusions. Public bureaucracy is not a natural phenomenon of private sector growth. The United States economy grew by leaps and bounds throughout the 19th century without growing an enormous bureaucracy. Something fundamental changed when Woodrow Wilson separated the bureaucracy that is needed in any government from the political process. The administrative state, a permanent “shadow government” of unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats was born and that has not been a good thing for the United States nor will it be a good thing for Alaska.
