Paul C. Light to present new research on why government fails in a press briefing.

NYU Wagner professor Paul C. Light will present his new Brookings Institution research paper on recent government failures such as 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, the 2008 financial collapse, healthcare.gov, and the Veterans Affairs wait list scandal. Titled “A Cascade of Failures: Why Government Fails, and How to Stop It,” the paper examines the contributors to 41 highly visible failures since 2001, and offers recommendations for increasing the odds of success.
