Big government = big business

“The first great error here is the mental habit that many have of thinking that big government and big business are somehow at odds.  The whole American history from the beginning to the present suggests precisely the opposite.  From Alexander Hamilton to Goldman Sachs, a careful look at the history shows that there has been no major expansion of government that some sector of big business hasn’t backed with pressure and funding”.
