What Is Government Good At?

A Canadian Answer

Auteur/ Illustrateur / Sous la direction de : Donald J. Savoie

Recent decades have shown the public’s support for government plummet alongside political leaders’ credibility. This downward spiral calls for an exploration of what has gone wrong. The questions, “What is government good at?” and “What is government not good at?” are critical ones—and their answers should be the basis for good public policy and public administration. Donald Savoie argues that politicians and public servants are good at generating and avoiding blame, playing to a segment of the population to win the next election, keeping ministers out of trouble, responding to demands from the prime minister and his office, and managing a complex, prime minister-centred organization.
