William D. Eggers: When Government Works and When It Doesn't
When Government Works and When It Doesn’t
William Eggers, Co-author, If We Can Put a Man on the Moon…Getting Big Things Done in Government
Frustrated by the growing list of high-profile failures, Americans have rarely expected so much from our government while also having so little public confidence in government’s ability to actually get things done. Eggers discusses the highlights from his review of more than 75 government undertakings in the U.S. and abroad to find out what works, what doesn’t and why.
