From Chapter 1: “Since the 1980s, a remarkable movement to reform public management has swept the globe. In fact, the movement is global in two senses. First, it has spread around the world, from Mongolia, China, and India to Sweden, New Zealand, and the United States. Second, it has been sweeping in scope. Governments have pursued management reform to deliver better value for tax money and, more fundamentally, to reshape the relationship of the state with its citizens. Some nations, such as the United States, have been inveterate reformers, but virtually no part of the planet has escaped the impulse to reform.”
