Liberty Quotation of the Day: Milton and Rose Friedman on How Government Expands by Failing

Quote Posted on Updated on

Milton and Rose“Experience shows that once government undertakes an activity, it is seldom terminated.  The activity may not live up to expectation but that is more likely to lead to its expansion, to its being granted a larger budget, than to its curtailment or abolition.”

Milton and Rose Friedman, Free to Choose[1980]
