Summary
What are the consequences if the people given control over our government have no idea how it works? In Agriculture the funding of vital programs like food stamps and school lunches is being slashed. The Commerce Department may not have enough staff to conduct the 2020 Census properly. Over at Energy, where international nuclear risk is managed, it's not clear there will be enough inspectors to track and locate black market uranium before terrorists do. Lewis takes us into the engine rooms of a government under attack by its own leaders, a world in which there is an upside to ignorance, and downside to knowledge. -- adapted from information provided
