Críticas:

"Philip Howard has been on a lonely crusade for common sense, good government, and other quixotic ideas. He's done it again with The Rule of Nobody, an utterly compelling and persuasive book that, if followed, could change the way America works-or doesn't work." -- Fareed Zakaria, author of The Post-American World "It's so damn hard to fix things when people can't-or won't-make new choices. This powerful book shows how Washington is sinking in legal quicksand, literally beyond the power of those supposedly 'in charge.' Perhaps the only solution, as Howard argues, is to prune out these obsolete laws and chop away on the bureaucracy so that citizens of common sense can roll up their sleeves and get to work again as America has always done. Today, leadership is practically illegal." -- Alan K. Simpson, U.S. senator, Wyo. (retired) "Philip K Howard has always struck me as an eminently reasonable, articulate advocate for common sense solutions. No wonder no one listens to him." -- Jon Stewart, The Daily Show "Philip Howard offers a startlingly fresh slant on what is holding America back. No one is free to make choices, including, especially, government officials. Regulatory law has become a nearly impenetrable web of detailed prohibitions and specifications. Everyone is hamstrung. Dense regulation discourages individuals, communities, and companies from taking new initiatives. It also prevents government officials from making the case-by-case judgment needed for effective regulatory oversight. This is an important reason why it is so expensive to start a business, why healthcare costs have gone through the roof, and why innovation has slowed to a crawl." -- Professor Edmund S. Phelps, 2006 Nobel Prize in Economics and director, Center on Capitalism and Society "You'll laugh and wince and cry at the ridiculous situation America has gotten itself into. Howard shows us how we manufactured the rope we are now hanging ourselves with. Then he shows us how to untie the noose and put America back on the path to trust, competence, and greatness." -- Jonathan Haidt, author of The Righteous Mind "This book is so deep, appealing, and rousing that it has the potential to actually move politics out of its current stasis." -- Christopher DeMuth, Distinguished Fellow, The Hudson Institute "Amid the liberal-conservative ideological clash that paralyzes our government, it's always refreshing to encounter the views of Philip K. Howard, whose ideology is common sense spiked with a sense of urgency... [This] book drives home some large truths." -- Stuart Taylor Jr. "Compelling." -- Nick Gillespie "Howard's proposed fix is witty, and intriguing: a follow-up to the Bill of Rights called the Bill of Responsibilities. These would be five new Constitutional amendments aimed at making government work better." -- Kyle Smith "Philip K. Howard's important new book... helps to explain why government at all levels not only is on autopilot but on a flight path that can only end in disaster... The Rule of Nobody 'envisions a shift in values-away from automatic government and toward a structure that allows humans to make choices needed to adapt to local need and global challenges.' Well, here's hoping." -- Nick Gillespie "A convincing, provocative argument... Howard's clear, levelheaded descriptions of how things are done elsewhere...proves his point: We really need to figure out a better way to operate, lest the country grind to a halt." -- Jesse Singal "Rather than asking what's right to do, Howard contends, government asks what the rulebook says to do. As a result, waste occurs, debt rises, schools fail, health-care costs soar, the economy falters-and even problems that seem simple and easy to solve become bureaucratic nightmares." -- Alan Wallace "Howard has written a splendid book, as entertaining as it is alarming... I cannot imagine how anyone could read it without responding enthusiastically to his call to arms." -- F.H. Buckley "Howard's red tape case histories-Medicare and nursing home regulations, for example-boggle the mind... [He] is a caring critic, and his call for citizen groups to ally in the fight for responsible government should be heeded." -- Ronald Goldfarb

Reseña del editor:

What's wrong in Washington is deeper than we think. There's gridlock, polarisation and self-dealing but hidden underneath is something bigger and more destructive: a broken governing system. From that comes wasteful government, rising debt, failing schools, expensive health care and economic hardship. Rules have replaced leadership. This explosive manifesto argues that to get America moving again, Americans must be free to make sensible choices-to scrap obsolete laws and to approve new infrastructure projects in a year. Philip K. Howard explains what went wrong in the American operating system, how to mend it and how to re-engage the American spirit to make things right again.
