Geoff, you make an excellent point.

What came first, the booming economy, which increased the role of the private sector or shrinking government, which does the same thing.

However, what you can do, is look at the nominal change from one period to another.

From 1993 until 1999, non military spending went up 34.8%. In contrast, from 2000 to 2007, non military spending went up 50.9 %.

Nevertheless, I agree with you that there are many other factors that affect economic progress.

My point is that we tend to create positive scenarios from seemingly negative actions and vice versa.

Look at the price of oil and gas. When the stimulus checks went out to the people, oil and gas spiked, thus countering most of the effects of the government "help". Now that the government has shifted its help to the corporations, the price that consumers pay for basic staples has fell dramatically.

Isn't it interesting to see the correlation between government help for the people and oil increases, in contrast to corporate help and oil price declines.

What the government giveth to the people, the universe taketh away and vice versa.

I can't prove this theory of balance, but try taking a fair look at it.

If it is correct, it means that the universe is always judging your actions with complete fairness and will prosper you in proportion to how much you help others.
