Contrast this to how things are today. Today, the primary activity of the federal government consists of taking money from people who earned it, and giving the money to people to whom it does not belong.Read more ›
Browne's attention to details and a well throughout plans on how to fix Social Security, reduce the deficit, and eliminate federal tax and makes the government smaller and smarter is a real pleasure to read. While I think that they might be a little ambitious, I also think they are achievable.
The book shows how social programs started out with the best of intentions and have become and overburden to society. Browne's how the government has and is failing in so many areas and they ways we need to go about changing them in order to make a brighter future for everyone.
Browne conveys all of these ideas, once again proving that without the government we can save money. I must admit, I was a little skeptical about this book, but Harry Browne has convinced me that things can be brighter with a little work - well done!
the sale of land assets of the the U.S. Government. He calls for an end to: public schools, public support for agriculture, the war on drugs, and most other government programs. He proposes an end to the income tax and abolition of the IRS. He gives examples of why all the well intentioned programs of govenment have unintended consequences, almost all of which are negative.
The book is written in short, easy to read chapters so that the reader has time to ponder the exciting and novel ideas contained in each. I have read the book twice and intend to read it again.
