Philip K. Howard is a prominent attorney and commentator. He’s the Founder and Chair of Common Good and author of the classic, “The Death of Common Sense” and author of the new book, “The Rule of Nobody: Saving America from Dead Laws and Broken Government.”

Howard discusses whether it’s worth it for people to trust the government. He shares his thoughts on how the government has made people inept.
