Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - OPINION - Dick Sim is the au­thor of “Free­dom to Ar­gue: We the Peo­ple Ver­sus They the Govern­ment.” He spent 30 years trav­el­ing the world over­see­ing global in­dus­trial op­er­a­tions, which in­cluded serv­ing as CEO and chair­man of two NYSE pub­lic com­pa­nies.

Re-engi­neer your vast ar­ray of laws, reg­u­la­tions and bu­reau­cra­cies to try and de­liver ef­fi­cient ac­count­able govern­ment ser­vices.
