    That’s an interesting comparison/observation, that the US government is growing faster than the Chinese economy.

    At one point last year there was a focus on encouraging small business growth as opposed to job growth in terms of lowering unemployment. What happened to that?

    One thing among many that concern me about that is how many of those jobs are actually productivity jobs versus administrative-type jobs. Do those D.C. jobs actually increase America’s output or wealth? More than just jobs, America needs productive jobs.

    Side note – have you picked up Breitbart’s new book? (Or do you get one as a contributor?)

      Not yet. I also haven’t heard anything about getting one as a contributor.

      The federal jobs don’t, but the companies that contract to the government are what is likely driving local job and GDP growth.
