Bernie and Hillary favor the country politics at the top of the graph.


The graph depicts the percent of Gross Domestic Product eaten by the government for various countries. We are not where Bernie and Hillary would like us to be. Bernie likes the top four! Personally, I’d push to move toward the bottom four.

    What was Ireland’s status before it was almost bankrupt but turned the country around to have a strong economy by austere cuts in government spending and waste?

    China? Russia? India?

    The Obama budget proposal for 2016 is $4.15 trillion. China’s is $2.2 trillion. However, do they get by?

    Thanks for the Ireland data. As I read that, the following is noted. Without the fiscal measures taken between 2008 and 2012, it is estimated the ratio of government spending to GDP would have been 180%, not the 36% it is now. In 2008, it was 42.8%. In 2009, 66.1% and after measures taken, the ratio fell back to 42.1% in 20012. There are many factors, I presume, besides drastic slowdown in federal spending but the latter was the primary weapon in that battle.
    Hopefully, it won’t take major financial losses for the US to get back on track. But every citizen will have to tighten his/her belt ( but who wants to do that if our government “leaders” are not willing to cut their dependence on the public trough!)

    Does the US number include state and local spending? I thought the US number was greater than 40%.
