  • Virtual Books @ Baker with Mitchell Weiss

    May 18, 2021

    Is government too big, too slow, and too mired in bureaucracy to tackle climate change, crumbling infrastructure, public education inequities, and other tough social problems?


    It doesn’t have to be, says Professor Mitchell Weiss. But government officials should focus less on what seems like “safe” solutions, shift to entrepreneurial mindsets, and experiment with new ideas, according to his new book "We the Possibility: Harnessing Public Entrepreneurship to Solve Our Most Urgent Problems."


    During this virtual event he reflects on the potential for Possibility Government even in an era of diminished trust and increasing partisanship, and as he provides inspiration for the crucial role government can play to help shape progress for generations to come.
