Transformation requires uprooting our obsolete, century-old systems and replacing them with new models better suited to the 21st century.

How can they transform everything from education to national security, revolutionize everything from voting to commuting, solve problems from corporate fraud to welfare cheating? All this is addressed in policy prescriptions, including invaluable tips for putting the ideas into practice."@en ;
