"From the days of George Washington through World War II to today, goverment investments have failed dismally.

Simply put, federal officials don't have the same abilities or incentives as entrepreneurs. In addition, federal control always produces polititcal control of some kind. What is best for politicians is not often what works in the marketplace. Politicians want to win votes, and they can do so by giving targeted CEOs benefits while dispersing costs to others. Uncle Sam Can't Count is filled with examples of government failures and free market triumphs"--
