If We Can Put a Man on The Moon...Then Why Does Government Fail at Just About Everything Else? In If We Can Put a Man on The Moon... (Harvard Business Press), former Reason Foundation privatization ***ysts William D. Eggers and John O'Leary ***yze why large-scale government projects typically go so wrong—and how to change a culture that almost demands such failure. The response to Katrina, the Iraq war, NASA since the moon landing, Boston's Big Dig—it isn't difficult to list examples of utter, often tragic failures in the public sector. The key to avoiding such debacles, say Eggers and O'Leary (who bring a wealth of public and private-sector experience to the material) is to first make sure that government should be doing a given project in the first place. From there, both policymakers and the bureaucrats who will administer a given program need to understand and anticipate all sorts of traps into which they can, and all too often, do fall into.

"Harlem Rag" played by Marty Eggers and Frederick Hodges The first rag published by a black composer, Tom Turpin's "Harlem Rag" dates from 1897. Turpin was the proprietor of the famous Rose-Bud Cafe after which Scott Joplin's "Rose-Bud March" was named. Marty Eggers is on the upright piano to the left, with Frederick Hodges on the grand piano to the right. The laughter at the start of this video is because Frederick, assuming the audience would know this very well-known rag anyway, introduced it with a fake title: "I Kissed Her Two Sweet Lips and Left Her Behind for You". Recorded on Sunday 12 August 2007 during the 9th annual Sutter Creek Ragtime Festival.
