Video title: The Bureaucracy The Real Power

Use this American Government by the People video entitled The Bureaucracy: The Real Power to understand how government works and to study how Bureaucracy's chief characteristics are continuity, predictability, standard operating procedures, and the inevitable "red tape." Learn how the bureaucratic agencies reflect how the American political system has tried to identify the most important national goals and how policies are implemented. Discover how we often condemn bureaucracy and bureaucrats, yet we continue to turn to them to solve our toughest problems and to render more and better services, and how in the last decade there have been major efforts to overhaul and improve the workings of the federal bureaucracy. Despite numerous initiatives to streamline the government, eliminate waste, and make government more like an effective business, critics continue to call for less bureaucracy and more reforms.
