The Benefits of Decentralized Government
One of my pet ideas is the weakness of the federal government, but it turns out that in at least one respect, we're too centralized. The Office of Personnel Management makes the snow decisions for the feds in the DC area. In Canada, there's no central decision making body according to this Gov. Exec. rerun of a Wired report. Seems to me some decentralization in the US might work better--let the USGS in Reston have a different decider than SSA in MD.
