Ever since I studied public administration in graduate school at
UW-Madison in the early 1980s, I have always been a fan of the
concept of efficiency. Sometimes it was driven by the need to
use limited resources as wisely as possible, making the stretch
as far as possible. And sometimes it seemed to be driven by an
occasional bout of laziness. How can I get this task done as fast
as possible so that I will have time to watch the Green Bay
Packers on TV.

But I have to admit that I’ve started to think differently about
efficiency. Granted efficiency is still greatly desired and the drive
for it has led to many an invention to make our lives easier, to a
certain extent. I am not opposed to efficiency. It’s just that I have
to wonder if I am any better off with it being the only variable that’
s important.

I have to admit that I’ve been pondering the value of efficiency
ever since I read articles that detail how American workers
have been impacted by the advances in productivity since the
1970s. Or how they haven’t been impacted. While American
workers have become a lot more productive — for the most part
due to technological innovations and efficiencies like the
economy of scale — the increased value of that productivity has
not been shared with American workers. --
