Re: the Bush Administration's plan to tie department funding to managerial efficiency -- what he said.

I would only add that this is a clear case of why "let's apply some fundamental business principles to government" does not always work -- these are not independent business units that can simply be shuttered if they underperform. Principles of capitalism do not always map well to government. In fact, let's make the larger point: Capitalism is not The Solution to every problem. Nor are Socialism, Objectivism or Social Darwinism. I am innately suspicious of totalizing ideologies -- the messiness of life belies any attempt to posit a Grand Unified Theory of human behavior.
