內容簡介


如果控制政府的人不知道它是如何運作的,會有什麼後果?

川普政府的好幾位官員就是這樣的角色,對自己的角色定位不清楚,不知道自己應該做什麼。

《攻其不備》、《老千騙局》、《橡皮擦記畫》暢銷作家麥克.路易士,帶著讀者進入正在被自己的領導者攻擊的政府引擎室,不管是農業、商業、能源部門都是一片混亂,對美國內外政造成巨大的威脅。

路易士指出,刻意的忽視對這樣的災難是很重要的因素,知道的越多生活越混亂,只要充耳不聞一切似乎就會簡單多了,例如只想要暫時解決問題,就不要去想之後要付出的代價有多大,如果要對困難的問題有免疫力,就最好不要去了解這些問題。

即使是因為內在問題造成這樣的混亂,所幸政府中還是有富含知識的聰明人,路易士訪問了這些人,希望可以給大眾一些警示。

The election happened," remembers Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, then deputy secretary of the Department of Energy. "And then there was radio silence." Across all departments, similar stories were playing out- Trump appointees were few and far between; those that did show up were shockingly uninformed about the functions of their new workplace. Some even threw away the briefing books that had been prepared for them. Michael Lewis's brilliant narrative takes us into the engine rooms of a government under attack by its own leaders. In Agriculture the funding of vital programs like food stamps and school lunches is being slashed. Commerce 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 finds the linchpins of the system-those public servants whose knowledge, dedication, and proactivity keep the machinery running. And he asks them what keeps them up at night.
