Peter Schuck – Why Government Fails So Often – And how it can do better.

From healthcare to workplace conduct, the federal government manages more of our lives. The consequence is a threat to government legitimacy. Examples of how to right the foundering ship of state.

Yale law professor. Information and his visit to The Daily Show:

This is an excerpt from Gene Epstein’s review of Schuck’s book in Barron’s:

“Fervent supporters of proactive government will find Yale Law School Professor Peter Schuck to be a sympathetic guide. A former official under President Jimmy Carter in what was then called the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Schuck reveals that he voted both times for Barack Obama, and declares in the book’s first chapter, “I support many public programs, and as a citizen I take no pleasure (indeed, I am dismayed) in finding how often my government fails, as I dutifully report in the chapters that follow.”
