Reforming the Forest Soviet
The Committee of Scientists has ignored the prime lesson of the 20th century: centralized planning does not work. The Forest Options Group, a consensus group of industry, environmental, and Forest Service leaders who have been meeting for two years, believes that the Forest Service needs true alternatives: governance systems that promote cooperation, not polarization; decentralized budgeting, not congressional micromanagement. The way to find out what works best is to test a variety of alternatives on various national forests, and to that end the author describes five pilot programs.
