Crowding Out Business Investment

"[C]entral governments and the money center banks co-exist in a mutual admiration society where government capitalizes the banks and the banks are the primary buyers of excessive government debt.  Because government doesn't create any real economic value (it regulates it and transfers it from one group to another), the domination of government assets on bank balance sheets in place of private sector assets spells real trouble for the future economic growth in the Western economies."--Robert N. Barone, Ph.D.

Dr. Barone's commentary is viewable at Minyanville.
