Parkinson's Second Law states: "Expenditure rises to meet income. The individual who has a rise in salary, will always find a way to spend the extra money. Individual expenditure not only rises to meet income , but tends to surpass it, and probably always will. What is true of individuals is also true of governments as well."

This volume should be required reading for all government officials.
