In this interview with the Cardinal Institute for West Virginia, I discuss how the sprawling missions of towns, cities, and other municipalities negatively affect the lives of those who form those communities.
In this short interview for the Empire Center, I discuss why the conventional remedies for municipal financial problems don't work.
"Cities across the United States are in a persistent financial crisis because their governments are unable or unwilling to define who and what they are. In fact, many cities’ finances are so poor that they’re going bankrupt. The fundamental problem is that city governments attempt a scope of service provision that is impossible to deliver on."
Prominent economist Vance Ginn talks with me about my approach to solving municipal administrative financial and administrative challenges. I talk about why zero-based budgeting and other conventional approaches do not work.
