    An accurate observation (there are productive private producers in other area's also) In the abstract, productive private producers, no matter where they are, are in outlying regions of our nation and states, financially burdened to pay for a parasite public economy of lawmakers, lobbyists, contractors, and bureaucrats in the political centers.

    The economy would boom if the bureaucrats would get out of the way.

    Yes at the turn of the last century 90% of the population was considered living in the outlying regions. Subsistence living, small farmers and ranchers. Industrialist and the likes building unsustainable cities, chemicals that poison our air and water for the sake of greed and materialism. Manipulation of the worst sort, fraud runs rampant. Parasites of the worst sort. Fabian socialist sitting in their towers of ivory relying on innovation to cure their self made disease.
