    For saying "Investment" instead of "Spending". Investments, whether government or private, should be designed to be smart - improving the capacity and the efficiency of the economy, thereby repaying more than they cost. What sorts of investments qualify?

    Good education - needed for a competitive workforce.

    Good healthcare - ditto

    More efficient transportation and buildings - to reduce costly energy usage, pollution and supply line protection (think global military requirements).

    Feel free to add your own examples...

    Corporations exist to benefit shareholders. Governments should exist to benefit citizens.
