Our nation's prosperity is increasingly endangered by a public sector that has grown more expensive, excessively controlled by special interests and often both less effective, and less responsive to citizens. Government bureaucracies have become resistant to improvement and impervious to the kinds of transformative, disruptive innovations that form the foundation of prosperity in the American private marketplace. Government performance is threatening the conditions of future prosperity in ways previously unknown in American history. The growth of public debt and deficits resulting from government's practice of protecting its own growth presents a new challenge to the future of American prosperity.
