In this chapter you have learned about the bureaucracy of the government, the
civil service system, and the advantages and disadvantages of the federal bureaucracy.
Whatever advantages the bureaucracy may have, many people have long been unhappy
with the complexity and waste inherent in the system. For this reason, former
Vice President Al Gore began a campaign in 1993 to "reinvent government"to
streamline the bureaucracy and eliminate wastefulness. In this activity you
will take a closer look at this initiative.
