Henry E. Brady, Amy Lerman

Event: In the Living Room with Henry E. Brady

Date: April 5, 2018 Duration: 29 minutes

Goldman School Professor and political scientist Amy Lerman explores the roots of why trust in government has declined over time even as its performance has improved around the country. She gives examples of how some services are evaluated differently, based on whether they were perceived as being run by public or private organizations. To change these negative attitudes, Lerman suggests that public officials do a better job at explaining what governments do in this conversation with Dean Henry E. Brady.
