Description
Article in The Atlantic, written by Peter F. Drucker, on government reinvention under the Clinton Administration, initiated by Vice President Al Gore. Drucker provides examples of government changes that have already occurred in several government sectors, then argues that the administration's list of new proposals is ultimately trivial. Drucker proceeds to talk about how Gore's "patching" and "downsizing" approaches are destined to fail or fall short, and how the contemporary welfare program and war on drugs should be reassessed and possibly scaled down. In the end, Drucker proposes an actual theory of government, and what it could and should do, to better guide government, rather than a smaller or larger government structure.
