Simpler: The Future of Government

Book by Cass R. Sunstein

How can government be more “user-friendly”, simple and efficient by streamlining and reforming government regulation and rule-making?

This book is about making things simpler, how governments can be much better, and do much better, if they make people’s lives easier and get rid of unnecessary complexity. “…simpler government can be found in new initiatives that save money and time, improve health, and lengthen lives” (Simon & Schuster).

In this book the author Cass R. Sunstein shares his experiences from 2009 to 2012 when he was Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the Obama Administration. His theories shaped and continue to shape the Obama administration and the American nation. In this interview (Brookings) Sunstein lines out his main findings and focus.
