Cass Sunstein is a very good person, but he will die on the vine at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Bruce McConnell’s old job (Bruce spoke at OSS ’92, along with Arnie Donahue, nothing has changed since then).

Knowledge policy is best understood at three levels:

1.  Creating holistic national strategy, policy, and operations that are affordable and achieve the desired outcomes in the shortest time for the least cost.

2.  Assuring the connectivity of all humans and all relevant information across all boundaries.

3.  Making the most of each individual person, educating them rather than “training” them.  Those who are trained create wealth for others; those who are educated created infinite wealth for all.

In the interests of brevity, since this entire web site is about knowledge policy and creating a Smart Nation that in turn creates a Prosperous World at Peace, see the below four references.
