Is Blue Killing Green? Can Red Save Green?

As the blue social / government model the US and Western Europe operate crumbles, many wonder what's next.  In the built industry the blue model poisons the well in thousand different ways.  If green advocates seek success the red model - smaller government, lower taxes and more economic freedom - likely provides a better path forward.  Command and control in the built environment is proving no more successful than command and control in the broader economy.

Even if you are a Keynesian and believe that deficit spending helps the economy to grow, infrastructure projects won’t do the trick anymore. By the time you’re actually actually able to get the project off the ground, the recession has been over for years. 

And the problem runs deeper than infrastructure. Our bureaucratic institutions are ponderously slow. We need new structured interactions between laws, courts, and  agencies that can process information and make decisions in real time — rather than putting everything in bureaucratic limbo for decades.   
Why nothing is shovel ready anymore
