JohnMcGinnis.jpg

  Our guest today suggests that our problems in Washington can be fixed by adapting our democracy to new information technology. John McGinnis, former Justice Department official in both Reagan and HW Bush Administrations, is now a law professor and author of a book that argues better decisions can be made about government policies when citizens are able to access information to bet on the consequences of specific decisions. We'll talk about Accelerating Democracy: Transforming Governance through Technology.
