Government in the 21st Century
As you must surely know by now for the last two months I’ve been producing daily updates over at my place on the pet food recall which, far from winding down, appears to be about in midstroke. In today’s update, I commented on an LA Times editorial which got me to thinking. The Food and Drug Administration is more than a century old, established to cope with the food and drug safety issues of a century ago. What would a 21st century FDA look like? What problems should it be dealing with? How would it function?
IMO our government, generally, is firmly moored to a 1950’s organizational and performance model. Should this be changed? Can it be changed?
I welcome your ideas and suggestions of approaches and resources. Please leave them in the comments.
