About the author

The author considers himself a radical. Radicals think outside the box and not limited by the Status Quo box. My career was in medical education. My time was spent in doing medical research, administration, and teaching, in that order. Thus much of my career involved the use of the Scientific Method. The methods and procedures of the Scientific Method have been used since the seventeen century to characterize natural science. The Method involves observation, measurements and experimentation. One generally forms a hypothesis from known data and designs experiments to test the theory. The process leads to the discovery of new knowledge. Price pointed out in his book titled: Little Science; Big Science, published in nineteen sixty most of the scientists, who have ever lived, are alive today. This is because of the rapid growth of population. The study of logic, decision-making, and problem solving have occupied much of my career time. I have always believed that the success in decision-making and problem solving by any institution was directly related to their organization. The organization chart and the ability to use the chain of command has a major effect on their ability to make creditable decisions and to solve problems. Observations have shown the nearer the decision is made to the people involved the less the adverse effects on the companies operations. It does not take a genius to know that when governments are deduced in number and size the cost of government is reduced. When the cost of government is reduced there are funds for purchase of items needed or used by society. When such Items are purchased there is an improvement in the nation’s economy. When there is an improvement in the nation’s economy employment is increased and the salaries are higher. When there is an increase in the number of people who are employed and the salaries increase the tax base is increased and the government can collected additional tax dollars. Thus, reducing the number and size of governments improves efficiency and provides effective results for society.
