  • Why Government Fails So Often: And How It Can Do Better

    • UNABRIDGED (17 hrs and 20 mins)

    From healthcare to workplace conduct, the federal government is taking on ever more responsibility for managing our lives. At the same time, Americans have never been more disaffected with Washington, seeing it as an intrusive, incompetent, wasteful giant. The most alarming consequence of ineffective policies, in addition to unrealized social goals, is the growing threat to the government’s democratic legitimacy. Understanding why government fails so often - and how it might become more effective - is an urgent responsibility of citizenship.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. It makes some great points and is well researched but as an audio book it is too dense.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Flash Boys to be better than the print version?

    It was written as a narrative so reads very well. I think the print and audio versions are equal in this case.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Brad. The idealistic hero. Lots of great characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When they were selling IEX to investors.


    Any additional comments?

    An incredible work. Fun to listen to and kept me in the car or working out for extra time to keep listening.
