Hills Governance Update: Governance Gridlock in The United States
October 11, 2012
Welcome to the inaugural issue of the Hills Governance Program newsletter. The Hills Governance Program is unique in that we are actually a network of seven centers, located in Beijing, Jakarta, Manila, Mexico City, Nairobi, Seoul, and Washington, D.C. Our central interest is improving governance, both public and corporate. We do so by trying to understand the root causes of governance dysfunctions, proposing remedies, and helping to implement them. We launch this newsletter with the hope that it will be a useful way to communicate some of the issues on which we are focusing, what we have come to understand, and some of our proposed solutions. The newsletter will present rotating analyses from our global centers on governance issues of interest in those countries. Our first issue focuses on governance challenges here in the United States. We hope this leads to increased conversation and engagement, and we always welcome your views.
