I did a video several years ago on the link between big government and big corruption, and I periodically revisit the issue by citing disgusting examples of sleaze and cronyism ranging from the Export-Import Bank to the racial spoils scam in Alaska.
The folks at Learn Liberty also have a great video on this topic, explaining how big government creates all sorts of unfair and corrupt advantages for politically connected large corporations.
So why, then, are some people in favor of big government. Is it naiveté or are they part of the racket?
In any event, I highly recommend some other Learn Liberty videos.
I especially like the last video since it echoes many of the points I made in my video series on the economics of fiscal policy.
