Lewis is not a fan of the Trump Administration If it is politics that initially shaped that determination and I am not sure it was it is facts about our government and how it has evolved to provide us with safety security and information that are the genesis of this book I found this one of the scariest books I have read about the immediate future in the USA It haunts my dreams It makes every day a little bit difficult to get through Why Because Lewis is a master at articulating the reasons why I cannot should not take for granted many of the things that I have taken for granted It s the reason I can only read a little of this book at a timeI have selected some uotes from the book some are his direct observations and some are Lewis uoting others Let me know how comfortable you are after reading them Some of the things any incoming president should worry about are fast moving pandemics hurricanes terrorist attacks But most are not Most are like bombs with very long fuses that in the distant future when the fuse reaches the bomb might or might not explode It is delaying repairs to a tunnel filled with lethal waste until one day it collapses It is the aging workforce of the DOE which is no longer attracting young people as it once did that one day loses track of a nuclear bomb It is the ceding of technical and scientific leadership to China It is the innovation that never occurs and the knowledge that is never created because you have ceased to lay the groundwork for it It is what you never learned that might have saved youAsked to list them he Presidential candidate and ex Governor of Texas Rick Perry named Commerce Education and then hit a wall The third agency of government I would do away with Education the ahhhh ahhh Commerce and let s see As his eyes bored a hole in his lectern his mind drew a blank I can t the third one I can t Sorry Oops The third department Perry wanted to get rid of he later recalled was the Department of Energy In his confirmation hearings to run the department Perry confessed that when he called for its elimination he hadn t actually known what the Department of Energy did and he now regretted having said that it didn t do anything worth doing The uestion on the minds of the people who currently work at the department Does he know what it does now In his hearings Perry made a show of having educated himself He said how useful it was to be briefed by former secretary Ernest Moniz But when I asked someone familiar with those briefings how many hours Perry had spent with Moniz he laughed and said That s the wrong unit of account With the nuclear physicist who understood the DOE perhaps better than anyone else on earth Perry had spent minutes not hours He has no personal interest in understanding what we do and effecting change a DOE staffer told me in June 2017 He s never been briefed on a program not a single one which to me is shocking Since Perry was confirmed his role has been ceremonial and bizarre He pops up in distant lands and tweets in praise of this or that DOE program while his masters inside the White House create budgets to eliminate those very programs We had tried desperately to prepare them said Tarak Shah chief of staff for the DOE s 6 billion basic science program But that reuired them to show up And bring ualified people But they didn t They didn t ask for even an introductory briefingThere is another way to think of John MacWilliams s fifth risk the risk a society runs when it falls into the habit of responding to long term risks with short term solutionsHis general point was that managing risks was an act of the imagination And the human imagination is a poor tool for judging risk People are really good at responding to the crisis that just happened as they naturally imagine that whatever just happened is most likely to happen again They are less good at imagining a crisis before it happens and taking action to prevent it People don t understand that a bungled transition becomes a bungled presidency The new people taking over the job of running the government were at best only partially informed and often deeply suspicious of whatever happened to be going on before they arrivedHe d explain that the federal government provided services that the private sector couldn t or wouldn t medical care for veterans air traffic control national highways food safety guidelines He d explain that the federal government was an engine of opportunity millions of American children for instance would have found it even harder than they did to make the most of their lives without the basic nutrition supplied by the federal government When all else failed he d explain the many places the US government stood between Americans and the things that might kill them The basic role of government is to keep us safe he d sayLewis noted that this current government is missing so many of the people who canmust run the agencies that are responsible for protecting our food keeping us safe from disease and doing the intelligence work that is absolutely essential No USA government has had so many acting heads of agencies two years into an administration nor has this Administration found replacements for the career workers and managers tasked with doing the day to day work that actually makes all the difference in the lives of over 300 million citizens

Summary The Fifth Risk

The Fifth Risk

Download ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ↠ Michael Lewis The Fifth Risk Characters Û 2 Michael Lewis ↠ 2 Free read Government under attack by its own leaders In Agriculture the funding of vital programs like food stamps and school lunches is being slashed The Commerce Department may not have enough staff to conduct the 2020 Census properly Over at Energy where international nuclear risk is managed it’s not clear there will be enough inspectors to track and locate black market uranium before terrorists doWillful ignorance plays a role in these looming disasters If your ambition is to maximize short term gains without regard to the long term cost you are better off not knowing those. Once again Michael Lewis author of Moneyball and The Big Short chooses as his protagonists a few ingenious manipulators of data but this time he does so with a difference the self effacing statistical warriors he singles out for praise are bureaucrats of the United States federal government a class generally overlooked and often despised These bureaucrats however are people not only familiar with the resources of their agencies but also committed to using them to make lives better for the American citizens who pay their salariesMuch of The Fifth Risk is heartening optimistic as we watch people who genuinely care about there jobs do what they know how to do but there is a dark cloud looming over every bureaucratic success story the Trump administration is now in charge of their government agencies an administration which holds such bureaucracies in contempt vassals good for nothing but to plunder and destroyThe book begins with a superb prologue in which believe it or not Chris Christie turns out to be the hero doing his best to organize a Trump transition team so that the various agencies can be staffed by people actually capable of carrying out their mission But Trump who cares neither for competence nor mission dissolves the transition team and then tells Christie You and I are so smart we can leave the victory party two hours early and do the transition ourselves The Fifth Risk introduces us to the people who are on a mission NOAA s Kathy Sullivan geologist and ex astronaut responsible for weather forecasting data mathematician DJ Patil Obama s chief data scientist USDA s Kevin Concannon in charge of food stamps and related programs Energy s chief risk officer John McWilliams and others and shows us what happens when they and others like them meet up with people care about nothing butmoney that is the Trump administrationIt is McWilliams who gives Lewis the title for his book After outlining four important risks faced by the Department of Energy nuclear accidents North Korea Iran the electrical grid McWilliams tells us what is the fifth and greatest risk project management The fifth risk incorporates all those unlikely and unforeseen long shot and long term disasters that only a vigilant committed agency has a chance of forecasting and forestalling In other words the sort of government Trump and his greedy grifters are constitutionally incapable of providingNo grifter sums things up uite as well as Barry Myers the AccuWeather CEO chosen to helm NOAA and oversee its comprehensive weather data collection efforts and its essential weather forecasts One of the first things he did was to make this valuable date unavailable to the public DJ Patil became concerned The NOAA webpage used to have a link to weather forecasts he said it was highly highly popular I saw it had been buried And I asked Now why would they bury that Then he realized the man Trump nominated to run MOAA thought that people who wanted a weather forecast should have to pay him for it There was a rift in American life that was now coursing through American government It wasn t between Democrat and Republicans It was between the people who were in it for the mission and the people who were in it for the money
