Richard J. Gelles, dean of social policy at University of Pennsylvania, explains why government programs designed to cure social ills don’t work in sector after sector. and never could work. He demonstrates how each creates its own bureaucracy to monitor participation in the program, an entrenched administrative apparatus whose needs supersede those for whom the program was designed. Against this, he contrasts universal programs such as the GI Bill, Social Security, and Medicare, the most successful, sustained government programs ever established.

Well written. The author does an impressive job getting his points across. He gives a lot of details to support his positions, but not at the expense of coherence. I was glad to get a comprehensive picture of a subject I knew little about. Proof that any subject may appear boring, but explained well can be fascinating.

Will assign portions or all of the book to my graduate students for policy class. Concise and illustrative. I use the example all the time in class. The emperor is naked.

Since World War 2 the United States government has constantly shown its ineptitude at just about anything it has tried to do. This book explains why but also gives antidotes to the problem. antidotes that the government never will try.

Gelles starts out making sense about how govt. programs don't work....in his case.....in school districts. His solution is to take control away from the states and do a universal program run by the federal govt. Terrible idea. He seems to think that social security and medicare are wonderful examples of how government makes things work and overlooks the facts that social security is close to being on the rocks and that the fraud in medicare can just be overlooked as the price one pays for government running things. Never once is the private sector even considered.

This book is poorly written, and gives nothing new to the subject. I was greatly disappointed in it.
the author seemed to be more taken with his status in the field and used his own experience3s and no other research in the subject.

The Third Lie is a smart analysis of government programs that is neither liberal nor conservative. Its gist is that most government programs fail and that the three primary ones that have succeeded are Medicare, Social Security, and the GI Bill, all of which are universal in application (no means testing) and devote almost all their funds to the problems they were intended to remedy (no cumbersome and often corrupt bureaucracy). There a number of very nice, infuriating, and illustrative stories along the way.
