Traversing Digital Babel - Information, E-Government, and Exchange | Prof. Alon Peled

In this book, Alon Peled proposes a groundbreaking approach to revitalize critical information flows in public sector agencies. Peled suggests considering public agency information assets as a contested commodity, and employing selective incentives to “nudge” agencies to exchange these assets in a Public Sector Information Exchange (PSIE). Peled demonstrates that PSIE and similar programs can save governments billions of dollars, improve services to citizens, and even save lives. Peled maps the primary ethical, political, legal, economic and technical challenges to PSIE and how these challenges can be addressed.
