I continue to work on a proposal to meld the jurisprudence of Lon Fuller, the leading American jurisprudential scholar in the third quarter of the 20th century, with a modern form of consequentialism in order to build a stronger foundation for the legitimacy of American legal institutions. I am also working on cross-cultural comparisons of oversight institutions.

Abstract: Does government fraud, waste, abuse, and corruption make your blood boil? In The Art of the Watchdog, Daniel L. Feldman and David R. Eichenthal show how to fight back. Based on their own work in federal, state, and local government over the last forty years, they will arm you with the tools and techniques needed to put the spotlight on those who cheat and steal from the public or who squander valuable taxpayer dollars through waste and inefficiency. At the same time, Feldman and Eichenthal outline what they see as the good and the bad of current oversight efforts based on case studies from across the nation. Ultimately their goal is to ensure that the “art of the watchdog” does not become a lost one and to improve the quality and integrity of government and strengthen democracy.
