Insightful response by Jack Welch in a Financial Times article last week. When asked if he would ever run for office he replied :
Never! Basically, government is riddled with bureaucracy, waste and inefficiency! In a company, you can clean those up and you have to! In government they’re there forever!
For people who grew up living in an unconnected world these may appear to be acceptable facts of life. However for people living and participating in an ever more connected world, conventional wisdom is being challenged on a daily basis.
