Its a bit of a thin analysis. Although I agree that public service is bloated, that's a situation that won't last as public service workers are ultimately at the mercy of the legislators that have supported the system to date, and those days appear numbered, given increasing action to decertify state public service unions. First, the author leaves out the large numbers of small business entrepreneurs that have decided not to rely on either big government or big business to make a living. Second, it is lame to leave out the enormous gap in wealth between the average private sector worker and their senior management. It can be demonstrated that paying a small fraction of the population obscenely large compensation is detrimental to the overall economy, especially when they have been given near carte-blanche to avoid paying taxes. Their pay and benefits are not used efficiently in the local market, as much is either hoarded or exported overseas, or transformed into unproductive investments.
