The New Federalist

Printer-friendly version

How can government become more efficient? The answer, world-renowned economist Gordon Tullock explains, is to let governments compete with each other. This means allowing small communities to decide how much to tax and spend. Citizens can then vote with their feet and settle in the community that gives the best mix of services for tax dollars. Governments that remain inefficient will lose their tax base and be forced to mend their ways. Tullock masterfully explains how Canada could move toward such a system and the benefits Canadians would receive.
