...for such a small book. What should have been a damning analysis of government spending is, in fact, a long list. The authors do not define what waste is, after all, one mans waste is anothers essential spending. Nor do they go into the politics of spending. How does the government spend? Why does it spend? Where is it spent? Who benefits most? None of these important questions are addressed let alone answered.
Certainly, there is plenty to make the blood boil, but what is the point of that if there is nothing else? Irony comes in small packages. So does this book.
