On Reason TV, Andrew Ferguson Discusses the Parasite Economy of Washington, DC

There’s a lot of money in Washington because federal bureaucrats are wildly overpaid, as I document in this video, and also because there is a huge shadow workforce of contractors, consultants, and lobbyists who have their snouts buried deeply in the public
In an interview for Reason TV, Andy Ferguson talks about how these well-paid
parasites have created a bubble economy in Washington.
