El tamaño del estado. La redistribucion a favor de los mas pobres. Andrew Jackson

Interesante discusion que se viene dando hace años sobre el tamaño del gobierno.

En este articulo Edward L. Glaeser, economista de Harvard, nos presenta una version poco difundida: small government igualitarism

Economics has little say about how egalitarian society should be. That is a question for moral philosophers and the democratic process. However, economics does tell us to choose efficient means of redistribution, and cash transfers almost always involve less waste than the alternatives. Reducing the payroll tax not only avoids the problems inherent in trying to spend infrastructure money quickly, but it can also directly target aid to the poor, who need help more and will spend the cash more quickly. Now that’s the kind of small-government egalitarianism that would have appealed to Andrew Jackson.
