The collapse of the public sector under Obama…

From Derek Thompson at The Atlantic, here. There are two charts and they tell pretty much the whole story: this administration has presided over a very large collapse in public sector jobs. Much of that of course is the result of how the Great Recession played out in the states and localities, but it’s also reflecting a macro-change towards smaller government supported by a distinctly libertarian streak that seems to be growing here in America.

How that will play out long-term here in the Washington DC metropolitan area should be interesting…
