Freeze Frame

July 15, 2005 Capturing the character of the kinetic Tom Davis. Sometimes a photographer neatly captures the character of his subject, as James Kegley has done for us with his cover image and inside-the-book pictures of Congressman Tom Davis, R-Va.

Business: Help Wanted

July 1, 2005 It's time for corporate leaders to get off the sidelines on important public problems. In late May, the media reported that prominent business groups were joining in serious discussions aimed at addressing our country's huge health insurance gap. This came as welcome news, because it hinted that American business leaders...

Labor’s Pain

June 15, 2005 Unions have been staggered by many blows. If George W.

Campaigns against...

Epistemological Puzzle

Building Community

April 15, 2005 That's an important goal in the magazine trade. Experts who study the magazine trade say it's all about building community, and that to accomplish the task, we must reach out to people in print, in person and online. Government Executive got started in the print business. Today, the magazine circulates...

Maybe Less Is More

April 1, 2005 The goals of shrinking government and recruiting talent can be compatible. For a dozen years, our political leadership has been on a mission to shrink the federal bureaucracy.

Flexing Human Capital

March 15, 2005 Do the government's 'chiefs' have enough pull to change entire bureaucracies? With the announcement in mid-February that veteran diplomat John D. Negroponte would be nominated as the first director of national intelligence, the question was raised anew as to whether he could accrue the powers the position is supposed to...

Leaders in Government
