Written by James Gustave Speth

There are many reasons why government is Washington today is more problem than solution.  It is hooked on GDP growth--for its revenues, for its constituencies, and for its influence abroad.  It has been captured by the very corporations and concentration of wealth it should be seeking to regulate and revamp, a pattern that has now reached alarming proportions.  And it is hobbled by an array of dysfunctional arrangements, beginning in the way presidents are elected.
