Prof. Coglianese on “Optimizing Government for an Optimizing Economy”

Professor Cary Coglianese explores how an ever-more optimizing economy therefore demands an increasingly smart, optimizing government. To ensure that government can properly balance policy goals in the new economy, steps need to be taken now to enhance the technological and analytical sophistication of the government workforce, improve the government’s information technology infrastructure, build stronger and more complete collections of data, and draw on policy lessons from other periods of technological innovations. In the optimizing economy, the government will continue to play a crucial role in protecting the public from market failures, but, to fulfill that role, government will need to follow the private sector’s lead and build up its own capacity for optimization.
