GOVERNMENT VS. PRIVATE SPENDING

WHO GETS THE BIGGEST BANG FOR THEIR BUCK?

COMPARE:

  1.  Andrew Carnegie founding the Carnegie Institute and providing funding for more than 2,000 public libraries, giving away $350 million vs. Congress recently spending $2.4 billion on 10 new jets that the Pentagon insists it does not need or will nt use?  (Heritage Foundation Study)
  2. Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen creating The Allen Institute for Brain Science with a $500million bequest  (www.forbes.com)( vs. the federal government’s inability to contain fraud losses within the Medicare system (now estimated at $60 – $100 billion annually)
  3. 3. San Diego real estate billionaire Conrad Prebys donating $100 million for medical research  (www.forbes.com) vs. the federal government wasting roughly $750 billion on unnecessary or poorly delivered services and other needless costs. (www.nytimes.com/2012).

We could go on, but you get the picture.  Private philanthropy can have a more direct impact as a result of two principle issues:  THE ABSENCE OF BUREAUCRATIC OVERLOAD, AND THE PRESENCE OF PRIVATE ENTERPRISE. (AMAC Advantage Magazine, Summer 2015)

QUESTION:  still think having a Big Government controlling everything (Socialism) is better than Private Enterprise)  Please think again and revaluate your position, if you do.
