In his 1961 Farewell Address, President Eisenhower famously referred to the emergence of a "military-industrial complex" so powerful that it threatened to warp America's political institutions and economy. However, the military was not the only part of a blended government workforce that was growing by leaps and bounds. Over the next half century, the true size of the federal government expanded in almost every department and agency as it came to depend on 7-9 million federal, contract, and grant employees to faithfully execute the laws. In The Government-Industrial Complex, public management expert Paul Light not only traces the expansion of the federal government's workforce over the past few decades, but also explains why it has taken the shape that it has. In marked contrast to governments in other wealthy countries, America's relies heavily on contract and grant employees to deliver goods and services even as the number of federal employees has held steady for seventy years. Light traces the rise of this government-industrial complex and asks whether and how the nation can be sure that the right people are in the right jobs to assure maximum performance for the public good. To do this, he offers short histories of the roles of various presidents and the impacts of war and economic crisis on the changing size of government. He also highlights the Trump administration's early strategies on downsizing and deconstructing government. Light emphasizes that achieving the right balance between public and private responsibilities is the key to making government both more efficient and more responsive. Comprehensive and pointed, this is a landmark account of the true nature and scope of national governance in the United States.

According to the National Collaborative Workforce and Disability for Youth (NCWD/Youth), the development of soft skills is identified as a critical component for success in activities such as civic participation and youth leadership in addition to school- and work-based learning experiences. Companies have identified the following competencies as key to success of young workers: Communication; Networking; Enthusiasm and Attitude; Teamwork; Problem Solving and Critical Thinking; Professionalism. Activities that can be found in this publication were created to provide an introduction to the "basics" of soft skills. These materials have been designed with youth service professionals in mind -specifically those working with in-school and out-of school youth, ages 14-21, on career and workforce readiness skills. Many of the exercises within this resource offer timed activities with directions for specific-workplace scenarios. Some of these activities include several interview role-play situations, plus lessons about a resilient attitude and understanding directions, to networking, plus social media, and email etiquette tips for professional work settings. With each activity, the text allows for extension activities, and journaling activities which are elements of common core principles taught in America's public school system today. Some of the exercises also present follow-up questions with spaces provided for answers as part of hands-on learning lessons. These activities can be used by a facilitator within a school's career and technology center, or a faith-based career search program, and by youth ages, 14-21 that are eager to find a paid position.
