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. 

張善政先生,曾任職前行政院院長和Google亞洲的VP高層職位,一個是私人企業部門和ㄧ個是政府公部門。我們都知道,當政府參與經營項目時,雖然規模和安全性可以提升(非比例增長),但效率、速度、和回饋卻會大幅減少。然而商業和國家都是在追求利益最大化,當在商業利益或社會利益同時考量下,但其中之一的潛在效能比另外一個高上好幾倍時,這其中的選擇和比較會划算嗎?

在這專訪系列中,張前院長討論了政府和業界的責任和彈性差異,並解釋兩者可互相學習的之處。
