If you want to be effective in government, give up the idea that writing policy papers will fix things. Instead, get an MBA, start a business, then come into government with the mindset of “where are we going to get the revenues to fund and execute on these great ideas I’m having. who’s in charge of the P&L and what case studies can I apply to increase my chances of success.”
