Zero-based bureaucracy

By

Zero-based budgeting makes great sense, and has been successful. The old days of just adding and adding without thinking are gone (and the corruption-prone system of reenacting budgets has been abolished as well). Everything has to be reviewed as to whether it makes sense, as to whether it is really needed, and is correctly funded. Anything new has to be challenged as to its relevance and need.

(Why, by the way, was it called “rush hour”? The last thing you were doing was rushing. “Stalled hour” would be a better description of the reality.)
