It is easy to spend other peoples money. Tax at a certain percentage and it just comes in every day. You don’t even have to think about it.
What if you run a little short?
You can just borrow and spend more.
I’m not sure what you call it when you have run out of other people’s money and the solution is just borrow and run up debt.
“The problem with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.” ~~Margaret Thatcher
