Now, waitaminnit. Government is part of the productive economy, it is not some kind of parasitic growth on the private sector. Unless you subscribe to what economists call the "physical fallacy," the belief that "real" wealth means only what you can hold in your hands. Soldiers and police officers and firefighters do not "produce" anything in that sense, but an economy can't get along without them. Even lawyers are productive.
