Can the Government Be More Effective?

Must read

William D. Eggers is co-author, with Donald F. Kettl, of Bridgebuilders: How Government Can Transcend Boundaries to Solve Big Problems. He’s now the executive director of Deloitte’s Center for Government Insights, but 30 years ago, he ran the privatization center for Reason Foundation, the nonprofit that publishes Reason.

Eggers has since worked with dozens of governments at all levels, both in the United States and internationally, and he’s written a shelf’s worth of books on the proper scope and function of government. Reason‘s Nick Gillespie talked with Eggers about Bridgebuilders, what he’s learned over the past three decades about making government more effective and less intrusive, and why it’s long past time to move beyond what he and his co-author call “the vending machine model” of government.
