Publisher's Summary

A democracy should reflect the views of its citizens and offer a direct connection between government and those it serves. So why, more than ever, does it seem as if our government exists in its own bubble, detached from us?

In reality, our democracy is not performing as it should, which has left us fed up with a system we no longer trust. Moreover, we lack a mechanism to fix what’s broken, because there is no incentive for politicians and civil servants to make government more accountable, efficient, and representative.

Saqib Iqbal Qureshi is calling on his fellow citizens to assert their voice in the dialogue of democracy. In The Broken Contract, he puts forth solutions - many involving easy-to-implement technologies. It’s up to us to turn the ship around. If you’re looking for the best way to start a conversation with your elected and unelected officials, this is the book you need.

Ideas and solutions that could work.

I enjoyed the book. I started to listen to it as our South African municipal elections approached and as I contemplated my vote. Our municipal services are generally in a state of disarray and I needed ideas on what could be done to fix them and how we could more closely monitor what was being achieved. The author makes good suggestions that, with just a little willpower, could actually work.
