I have added a few and think we might want to create a new category of "Government agency". Goodness knows, it could end up being used a LOT, I am sorry to say. I was considering also "Money" but the BEP "only" prints the currency. Thoughts, anyone? -- RayBirks 18:40, 28 November 2010 (CST)

Ray, I think that "Category:Government agency" would be very useful. Imagine being able to go to the category page and see the legion of bureaucracies, with links to articles where the evils of each are documented and footnoted from the Austrian perspective! I think Category:Money is appropriate for BEP as well. DickClarkMises 11:23, 29 November 2010 (CST)
Woops, I didn't see this discussion. I moved the category to Category:Government agencies to match the plural of Category:Organizations and all the people categories. However, I think it makes more sense to organize these by government rather than by type of government body (does it make sense to have Category:Government departments and Category:Government ministries and Category:Government bureaus, etc.). Thus I created Category:Government of the United States. --Forgottenman (talk) 12:19, 29 November 2010 (CST)
