Is change the key to functional government?

In their new book, “Fourth Revolution: The Global Race to Reinvent the State,” Economist editors John Micklethwait and Adrian Woolridge take readers on a global tour to assess government effectiveness.

The book argues that the West, and particularly the United States, is being left behind as nations revolutionize their governments to keep up with modernization.

How should countries adapt to sustain viable economies and stay out of debt? Is reinvention the key to success? Is the U.S. being left behind as other nations move into the governmental future?

The authors will speak about the Fourth Revolution at the Milken Institute Forum today at 4:30.

 

Guests:

John Micklethwait, editor-in-chief of The Economist

Adrian Woolridge, Management Editor and 'Schumpeter' columnist for The Economist magazine
