Too many Bureaucrats? Is the Public Sector costing too much?

This is a video by my friend Dan Mitchell from the Cato Institute and the Centre for Freedom and Prosperity.
While it may be primarily about the USA the concepts hold in Ireland. For instance, there are people in the OPW who are given a house on-site as part of their job and yet they still receive a travel allowance! It would be laughable if it wasn’t real. Dan spells out the downsides and you can’t easily dispute the numbers – if we were to do a similar analysis in Ireland would we find similar results?
