Author and Attorney Philip K. Howard Offers Views on Government Reform

September 12, 2014 at 12:35 pm

Philip K. Howard is the author of the best-seller The Death of Common Sense and the newly released The Rule of Nobody. Both works demonstrate the New York attorney’s quest to reform America’s system of government and, according to Howard, the nation’s flawed habits of rigid rule following. Appearing on numerous programs, serving as a political adviser and active civic leader, his hopes for simplicity and the comeback of common sense just might be catching on. Rafael Pi Roman interviews Howard about his ideas for a better, more efficient future.
