    In a recent paper for The Brookings Institution, Bruce Katz writes:

    “Given global competition, the next president should adopt a vision of collaborative federalism in which:

    * the federal government leads where it must and sets a robust platform for productive and innovative growth via a few transformative investments and interventions;

    * states and metropolitan areas innovate where they should to design and implement bottom-up economic strategies that fully align with their distinctive competitive assets and advantages; and

    * a refreshed set of federalist institutions maximize results by accelerating the replication of innovations across the federal, state and metropolitan levels.”

    What do folks think? Is it time to reinvent the relationship between federal, state, and local government?
