    Actually, I disagree with that point. Businesses existed before government, and they can exist without government. Government didn't build any of this. People and businesses did. The government works for us, not the other way around.

The bonds were approved in November 1930,[14] by votes in the counties affected by the bridge.[24] The construction budget at the time of approval was $27 million. However, the District was unable to sell the bonds until 1932, when Amadeo Giannini, the founder of San Francisco–based Bank of America, agreed on behalf of his bank to buy the entire issue in order to help the local economy.[7]

    True or not, there is a symbiotic relationship between business and government.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You "disagreed" with my point, but you stated my point.
