Skip to comments.Deloitte: the Western governments have to be transformed
Posted on 08/25/2010 12:10:11 PM PDT by Big Bureaucracy
The biggest auditor in the world Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu came up with opinion piece recently on how to deal with The Gap:
Western societies have over-committed their current and future resources Money has been spent that hasnt been earned, and promises have been made that cannot be fulfilled.The Gap is popular known as 'the trillions of dollars of unfunded liabilities' in social services created over decades of piling up entitlement programs and hefty pensions and benefits. Structural changes in government and bureaucracy are needed:
In a world of mobile capital, trans-border exchange, heightened competition, and exponential technological change, many governments are mired in bureaucratic-age thinking. In order to close their fiscal gap, governments will also need to address the associated performance gap
The bureaucratic barriers to change in the public sector greatly exceed those in the private sector not due to mal-intent, but due to a culture of risk aversion and program protection, and as a systemic consequence of the way government has been organized since the early twentieth century
Unfortunately the Deloitte paper does not give us any details on how and what specific bureaucracies should be transformed. It is a bit creepy. It looks like the folks at Deloitte who know everything about the way the world runs are not ready to share details with us while talking about transforming the Western democracies.

They broke it. They own it.
I would vote for that!
Yea, take them to China for some labor..
Does anybody go to jail for debt anymore?
They can garnish the wages of virtually every elected official or offspring for the past 100 years...or at least start with Nixon who gave us OSHA and the EPA
Actually, I can write the implementation report for DeLoitte et al. The differences between the leftists/socialists and normal Americans (normal people anywhere) are decades old and impractical to resolve. Therefore, grant the socialists some enclaves for an autonomous economy—I suggest Westchester County through Queens, San Francisco and surroundings, and a few other locales with all the trendy restaurants and home to the major propaganda media. They can print and spend “marx’s (Groucho or Karl, whatever)”. However, allocate that portion of the national debt to them they inaugurated (all the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s programs they gorged on under Democrat legislatures, for example) and want to continue. All the leftists can then continue to spend and regulate themselves into a frenzy while the rest of the nation continues on a traditional path with its responsible portion of the debt for defense, trade regulation, and required public services.
Let’s see if that makes them happy.
