Rejuvenating government

There seems to be a cycle for organisations - dynamic growth, consolidation, ossification and decline - which has implications for good governance. I believe that what has kept the UK in the top tier of nations has been the continuous injection of fresh thinking from immigrants, historically fleeing persecution in the rest of Europe, latterly from the free movement of labour mandated by the EU.

There is a difficulty in building this revivifying effect into institutions of government. This article outlines an American approach.
