Federal Budget, Taxes and Debt

“Blessed are the young, for they shall inherit the national debt.”
― Herbert Hoover – 31st US President – Born 1874 Died 1964


From our lectures you have learned that in the Market system we tend to have low Government intervention. However, governments also intervene in the markets to solve market failures such as pollution, unemployment, intervene to provide health care, property rights, education, infra structure, defense and much more. In order to achieve these so important goals the government needs funding. Funding traditionally is accomplished through tax collection.
