Eight Pathways to the Government We Deserve

Abstract

The authors discuss citizens' increasing estrangement from government and propose eight pathways to a government more attuned to current and future needs: (1) freeing the fiscal future; (2) giving social insurance a modern face; (3) making a government for all ages; (4) improving everyone's chance to build financial security; (5) investing in lifetime learning ; (6) increasing the time children spend with adults; (7) supporting the modern family; and (8) fostering a new democratic citizenship. The focus is on how these areas can restore government ownership to citizens and enable the development of a more dynamic public sector.
