  • Reimagining Government

    Despite the cultural and technological evolutions that have taken place in society over the last 100 years, our systems of institutional governance have failed to keep up. As a result, governments no longer have all the knowledge, resources or power to produce the results desired by their citizens, fostering a continual loss of confidence among citizens in the ability of their governments to be effective or ethical. This has led to a populist backlash, and to the creation of technological alternatives to governments as the primary source of social coordination. This book explores the nature of both the current challenges to governments as well as the emerging ones, in order to discover what it is that governments need to be doing in our modern context and the capacities they need to develop to retain their legitimacy.
