Minister of the Executive Yuan and Ex-Google VP talks private sector vs. public sector 張善政 | 中文

Zhang Shan-Zheng, previous Minister of the Executive Yuan and ex-Google VP in Asia, both high positions in the private and public sector. As we all know, whenever the government comes into play, efficiency, speed, and profits are drastically reduced, while scaling and security can be increased (non-proportionally). Businesses and nations are about maximizing benefits, whether it being monetary or socially, but when one is exponentially faster than the other, are the trade-offs worth it?

In this first part of our interview series, Minister Zhang talks about the differences in responsibility and flexibility from both the public and private sector, and how each side can learn from each other.
