The Men from McKinsey Diagnose Uncle Sam

"The report puts heavy emphasis on improving productivity in the public sector, and improving America's education system. But the public sector has proved almost impossible to reform, with temporary gains quickly being negated by vested interests (remember Al Gore's reinventing government programme); and the education system has proved even more resistant than the rest of the public sector. Alas, a country which is so good at business is pretty bad at government, and being good at government may be vital to bumping up those productivity numbers."
