"It is the highest impertinence and presumption, therefore, in kings and ministers to pretend to watch over the economy of private people, and to restrain their expense. ... They are themselves always, and without any exception, the greatest spendthrifts in the society." -- Adam Smith (1723-1790), An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, 1776
