Equalised Economic Power

Though there is often much focus on the richest private individuals in the United States, the U.S. Congress actually has far more economic power.

Economist Robert Lawson compares the economic power of the 535 most wealthy private citizens with the spending power of the 535 members of Congress. You might be surprised by what you find out.

As Congress continues to spend and government continues to increase in size, our economic freedom will continue to decrease. And as our economic freedom decreases, our economic opportunities and quality of life are threatened.
