Inadequate Equilibria vs. Governance of the Commons
“In reality, there's a broad continuous multi-dimensional range of policy options. The villagers can split the land into private and public parts. They can spend more on law enforcement. They can police each another. They can limit the usage of common resource based on effort spent maintaining it. They can use rotational allocation of land, or maybe a lottery. And so on and so forth. But it's even more complex than that. It not just policies that determine the outcome. The nature and the particularities of the resource itself may determine the optimal policy.”

As China’s Woes Mount, Xi Jinping Faces Rare Rebuke at Home | Chris Buckley | The New York Times
..“Xu has written a challenge from the cultural heart of China to the political heart of the Communist Party,” said Geremie R. Barmé, an Australian scholar of China who is translating Mr. Xu’s essay. “Its content and culturally powerful style will resonate deeply throughout the Chinese party-state system, as well as in the society more broadly.”

..Over recent months, China has been grappling with a growing trade dispute with the United States. Some Chinese foreign policy experts have suggested that the trade fights with the Trump administration could have been contained if Beijing had been more flexible and moved faster to douse triumphalist statements about its goals. “China should adopt a lower profile in dealing with international issues,” Jia Qingguo, a professor of international relations at Peking University, said at a recent forum in Beijing. “Don’t create this atmosphere that we’re about to supplant the American model.” Revelations about faulty vaccines given to hundreds of thousands of children have ignited public anger and protests, especially because the government promised to clean up after similar previous scandals. On Tuesday, Mr. Xi convened a meeting of the Politburo — a 25-member party leadership council — that warned of economic tests while promising to keep growth steady.

..“The harder question then becomes what that actually means in practice,” Mr. McGregor said in emailed answers to questions. “If it means heightened infighting in elite politics, it might result in policy paralysis and instability, rather than just a freer and more open debate.”

..Professor Xu’s future may now become a test of whether Mr. Xi will display greater tolerance of criticism. “I have said what I must and am in the hands of fate,” he wrote at the end of his essay. “Heaven will decide whether we rise or fall.”

The failed storefront revolution and the inner guild in all of us (059) | Legal Evolution
One of the reasons that the problem of access and affordability of legal services is still with us is that members of the legal profession are unable to agree on its root causes. Cf. Post 057 (discussing framework for solving very difficult problems). Thus, I don’t expect all readers to agree with my analysis on lessons learned from the storefront revolution.

In brief, I believe that the youthful and idealistic visions of Joel Hyatt, Len Jacoby, and Steven Meyers failed because, within the existing regulatory structure, they were unable to balance the needs of ordinary people, who were cash-strapped and intimidated by the legal system, with the needs of licensed lawyers seeking rewarding work for adequate pay.

Some practicing lawyers may resent this characterization, but Hyatt Legal Services and Jacoby & Meyers were/are professional service firms.  The fundamentals of this model are explained by David Maister in his classic book, Managing the Professional Service Firm (1993).  Obviously, a professional service firm can only succeed if it can operate profitably.  Yet, that outcome is only possible if a firm’s management can simultaneously succeed in two markets: the market for clients and the market for talent. See Post 010 (discussing model in the context of managed legal services).

The graphic below depicts the Maister model:

Christendom in 1200 Words (Give or Take) | Mere Orthodoxy
“If political authorities recognized that the Lord Jesus could only reign in the hearts of men by means of persuasion, and if they recognized that His kingdom was greater than that of any commonwealth, would they not recognize their own limitations – the transience of any political order (helping to prevent state idolatry and its consequences)? Would they not recognize that, precisely because Christ loves their neighbor and commands all persons to follow Him, they must defend the orphan and widow, and allow men to come to form their opinions honestly and with conviction?”

Interrupting the legislature | Cheta Nwanze | Medium
In this country, we have a culture of blaming the Legislature when it appears opposed to the Executive. There is no more short-sighted thinking than this in a democracy. In a democratic setting, the legislative arm of government is the one closest to the people, and most resistant to dictatorship.

Whereas it is true that our legislature(s) have a lot of work to do in terms of growing and justifying the huge cost the country incurs in maintaining them, we will do well to remember that if we want to scrap any office and continue to be called a democracy, it is executive offices that will have to go. Scrapping the Executive and remaining with the Legislature will mean that we have moved from a presidential democracy to a parliamentary one. The other way round, and we would have moved to a dictatorship. This is the reason why back in the days when coups were fashionable, it was always parliament that was sacked by the soldiers.

The reason why the legislature is always scrapped in the event of a coup is the same reason that the Obasanjo government, then the GEJ government, and now the Buhari government have always found reason to attack the legislature: a legislative arm, good or bad, is an impediment to executive recklessness, impunity and ill-conceived ideas.
