When you thought real government was bad…

This from AFP:

“A fake government office has been discovered in northern India that collected taxes, provided civic services and even handed out birth and death certificates, a report said Monday.”

A friend once said to me. I wish I was the government and could collect money without producing anything. Well now you can…

They got caught when the employees of the branch complained to the actual government about their salaries.

They hired people to sweep the roads.

I wonder how much money he made from that.

Quite a interesting and intelligent criminal but he learned something quickly.

In a free-market, if you do not pay your employee enough they will leave or complain.

But look at the bright side….

This proves it isn’t impossible to run a government like a business.
