Is Efficient Government Possible?

Yes, but only if citizens demand two transparencies.

Businesses must, BY LAW, be transparent. This forces them to become efficient for their shareholders and customers. The goods we buy get continuously better and cheaper. Think innovations like the iPhone, and customer service like Amazon. The two transparencies made this happen.

However, politicians ARE NOT transparent. They refuse to adopt for themselves the laws that made businesses transparent. This failure makes government increasingly less efficient for its shareholders (us), and its customers (us). Today’s government does not innovate, and does not serve us efficiently. Instead, politicians waste our hard-earned taxes and divert benefits to their friends.

We Americans deserve these two transparencies. But politicians will not give them unless we demand it.

TransGov’s mission is to help Americans bring about these two transparencies.
