Overview

Eggers (Manhattan Institute; Deloitte Research) prescribes more and better technology for what ails governments in America. Based on interviews with hundreds of politicians, researchers, technology industry CEOs, futurists, and public employees, he maps out the transition that's occurring from industrial age to information age government, lays out where the transformation could take us in the best case, and explains the perils and unintended consequences that could accompany the changes now under way.
