Marc E. Chavannes is a Dutch professor for journalism at Groningen University and active journalist. He has been correspondent (in London, Paris and 5 years in Washington D.C.) and commentator e.g. for NRC Handelsblad.
The main threa of the book is the drama of a country that sees the world around it change at a rapid pace, but is unable to adapt its old-fashioned mode of governance accordingly. In his collection of essays, Marc Chavannes uses many examples to denounce the market capitalization of former government services, the inability of the government to implement complex changes (for example educational innovation) and the lack of feeling among politicians and administrators for what really is going on in the society.
"Life in this country is overgrown with a species of algae that combines bureaucratic behavior and free market thinking, topped with a 1970s welfare sauce."
