Institutions and Government Growth: A Comparison of the 1890s and the 1930s
"For example, annual federal government per capita spending averaged $125 from 1792 to 1929 with no trend increase [inflation-adjusted 2000 dollars; OMB _Budget of the United States Government, Historical Tables_].   However, real [inflation-adjusted] federal government per capita spending rose from roughly $250 in 1930 to neary $9,200 in 2007."
