Q&A with Benjamin Ginsberg Professor Benjamin Ginsberg talked about What Washington Gets Wrong: The Unelected Officials Who Actually Run the Government and Their Misconceptions about the American People. For this book he and his co-author surveyed White House staff, federal agency officials, and the employees at policy-making agencies on their attitudes toward the people they serve. Professor Ginsberg began this interview by telling a story of a conversation he had at a dinner party with a senior-level government official in which she expressed her impression of typical Americans. Among other topics he also discussed his belief in the importance of cynicism; politicians' use of language; how federal rules and regulations are promulgated; his childhood growing up in Chicago; and how is interest in bureaucracy developed. close
