Point Of Interest:
Throughout his work, Luis insists that economic or administrative efficiency, while necessary, is an insufficient measure of the efficacy of governments. Amidst widespread skepticism concerning the ability of governments to deal with the complex social challenges in contemporary societies he proposes that governance requires collaboration between the government and subsidiary entities within the state, including private enterprise, economic, civil and religious institutions.
